But, there aren't enough signatures yet. So I tried advertising to my FB friends. I have to get to 150 before the petition is visible on the list of open petitions on the website.
That got me thinking: how do I find all the other petitions that aren't available for viewing yet due to being not-advertised enough?
They provide a short-URL for these petitions. This shortener probably is incremental. Mine is http://wh.gov/lInfx PLEASE SIGN IT and I figure the other petitions might have urls near it.
So, here's my program to find them:
#!/usr/bin/python #http://wh.gov/lInfx #http://wh.gov/lInfx nums1 = [x for x in range(65, 90)] nums2 = [x for x in range(97, 122)] nums =  nums.extend(nums1) nums.extend(nums2) print nums with open("/tmp/urls.wh", "w") as OFH: for i in nums: for j in nums: for k in nums: for m in nums: OFH.write("http://wh.gov/l%c%c%c%c\n" % (i, j, k, m)) # wget -a out.log -t 1 --read-timeout=3 --max-redirect 1 --save-headers
No luck yet, it takes a long time to run.
