Kill Data Progress

Short and sweet on this one.  Just want to share some of the graphpr0n I've managed to get out of the work so far.  I've pushed the raw data dumps to gdoc if you want to play along.

Notes

The main guy I am bouncing ideas off of with this project is Valkrr.  Since he's doing a far more comprehensive version of my table, we keep swapping tips and tricks.  Some quick progress stuff
  • Features yet to add
    • Clean up progress printing
    • Better tune between-call sleeps
    • More information in the crash handler (group progress numbers, "globals")
    • Repeated kill protection
    • Remove extra id/strings from DB
  • Might swap crawling style from groupID to regionID (as per Valkrr's advice)
    • better quality data faster
    • current schema needs WHOLE SCRIPT to run before module data is useful
    • not as easy to clean up overwrites?
  • IT TAKES FOREVER TO GET THIS DATA!
    • ~400kills/minute, 264k kills so far... 
    • still need cruisers, frigates, shuttles, and pods

Coup de Grace
