Scribot

Which sort of leads me onto the next thing. Ages ago Paul Mison and Leon Brocard hacked together Scribot.com which did weird things with SOAP (I think Leon was going through a web services phase then) and some sort of hybride dynamic and updated-via-cron-job website.

It's awful, which is weird because they're both good programmers but damn this is ugly, brittle, hacky code. So I thought about redoing it rather than trying to fix whatever odd interaction was going on with SQLite (before I figured it out whilst writing the note above).
