This is probably one of the sillier experiments Iíve done. Iíve put together a dynamic userbar that displays the current Pay Per View (PPV) offerings on DISH Network:
My daughter was interested in renting a movie and I thought Iíd check out what was on PPV. After browsing a bit, I wondered how hard it would be to pull the information and create a userbar for it. Thinking it an interesting challenge and an easy way to check out the latest movies, I dug into the HTML. Surprisingly, it wasnít too difficult to parse the out the images and titles. I originally thought about adding a little side bar to the site, but pulling the descriptions proved a bit harder. Instead, I decided to give the code my usual userbar treatment. In all, an interesting project. If you want to use it, the link is:
