Twitter Muzzles BOT House, EXP4

Twitter updates from BOT House and EXPIV stopped abruptly on September 1st when Twitter stopped supporting BASIC authentication.

This is both good and bad.

Bad because I have no idea how to use their new authentication model. I'm sure I can hack it out sooner or later, but I have other weenies to roast at the moment.

Busy, busy, busy!

Good because, face it, BASIC authentication sucks ass. It's so barely encrypted (in BASE64) that it might as well be clear text. It's a method to be avoided at all costs. But, it's also a good quick hack, something I'm very good at.

So for now, no more Twitter updates from BH or EXP4.

You can still tweet me if you feel like it.
