Shell scripts used to get show dates and episode numbers (messes up show 234):

(Yes, that's an inline newline...)

grep pid=[0-9]*\"\> ~/Downloads/rss.aspx.xhtml|sed -e 's/\(pid=[0-9]*\"\>\)/\ \1/g'|sed -e "s/.*pid=[0-9]*\"\>[^S]*\([^<]*\).*/The \1/"|grep Skeptics\ Guide|sed -e "s/\([0-9]\)th[ ,]*/\1 /;s/February/Feb/" | sed -e "s/The Skeptics Guide #\([0-9]*\) - \(.*\)/\* \[\[SGU Episode \1\]\], \2/"

Wow, that's... pretty thorough, I guess. I don't understand much of that, but thanks! Now that you've done all that work, would now be a good time to mention that I'm working on converting the page of SGU episodes from unordered lists to a group of sortable collapsible tables?

Heh heh. It wasn't hardly any work at all. I just copy pasted the output of the script in big swaths. If you have some of the formatting figured out, I can tweak that script to just output all the lines of wikified code for[[ you if it saves you time. --Jestofdoom (talk) 04:59, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

Hi there, and welcome to the team! Thanks for working on the code. I've rolled back Template:SGU episode list for now, as it's used for listing transcription pages (rather than episodes) and we'd rather keep it short for the main and SGU Episodes pages. But it's all saved in the revision history, so it can be used at a later date.
