My Xbox misses me

I'm currently on holidays up in the Kooteneys of British Columbia (actually I'm here to get married, but that's a whole other story....), as a result while my 360 is with me and has been getting used, it hasn't been hooked up to the Internet. My Xbox's blog is getting pretty comical, check it out at:


(360Voice.com is a cool site which gives your Xbox a blog which reports things like what games you played, achievements earned etc)

GamerCard Python script

Thought I'd share this with the world, I wrote a simple little command-line script in Python that given a Xbox gamer id shows the data from the user's gamercard. For example, output for my id (Pedle Zelnip) would be:

Your gamertag is Pedle Zelnip
Your GamerScore is 2510
You are a Silver member of Xbox Live
Your zone is Recreation
The last few games you've played are:
- Geometry Wars Evolved
- King Kong
- Hexic HD
- Cloning Clyde

No, I'm not a member of the XCDP, this was all done just by examining the public http://gamercard.xbox.com/YOURGAMERID.card URL (of course as a result if MS ever changes the format of gamercards, my code may very well break). If you want to check it out, you can grab it from:


Usage is just "python gamerCard.py userid" where userid is the user you want to check out.
