That code looks similar to something I wrote a few years back:

Mine uses the JSON feed, which is fairly easy to parse (with only a little
bit of oddness), and will probably break under Python 3 also. Looks like it
should be fairly simple to make it compatible with a few
strategically placed .encode('ascii') statements however...
