when you say 20 seconds did you reach for a bash command ? interested knowing which.
curl -s http://blog.balancedpayments.com/balanced-payments-operation... | html2text | grep -P '[^.*]=$' | head -n 1 | base64 -d | sed 's/../0x& /g' | xxd -r -c 100 | rev
I really wouldn't hire someone who wants to use grep to parse out html :P
Then again, I would not like to work for a place where engineers don't understand this ;)
so much for import base64!!
