Some scraping code I did for fun last night. I used Nokogiri and Ruby to scrape this site for the names and photos. Take a look at the code if you want to mess around with it.

I wrote this is code b/c I didn’t want to click through the 100 pages of the top 100 movie characters site. I mean, it’s like 100 clicks. I just wanted to see the name and the pictures. The following are the results.

1. Tyler Durden

2. Darth Vader

3. The Joker

UPDATE (2-19-2010): I moved this to another page b/c it was taking too much space and annoying when looking at later posts.
