My thought process when learning a new language.

Here's a little more help feeling it out, from someone who knows like no python but has some dev experience. Forgive me if this is too simplistic, but since you're starting out, it might be helpful.

My thought process going into a project like this is this:

What is the smallest chunk of this I can do in one logical step? Well I have an XML url I can go to to get a list of games. So I'm going to need to get that into my program. That's step one. And it is all I care about. So how do I do it?

There are really two steps here:

  1. Read the data from the url Kane provided.
  2. Parse the xml, turning it into something you can use in the rest of your code.

This script turns downloadable tweets from twitter into a markdown
based text file timeline.
To run, change the 'Username' and 'TwitterFilename' below.
I THINK that this is all working. Check the previous gist version
for a more stable script with far fewer features. Let me know in the
