Okay, find the first cut attached. You need python and the python-mysql libs. 
Go through the settings at the top, and change them for your situation. Then 
just run the program. It's all self explanatory. I've only tested it for the 
UK. Let me know if you have probs (or even better, fixes) and I'll help out 
where I can. It's not commented, and probably fragile in places, but it works 
for me!

Oooh my first contribution back to Myth. It may be small, but I've got a warm 
fuzzy feeling ;-)

Have fun...
