Spam your friends with Christmas Greetings
#!/usr/bin/env python
#
# Spam your phonebook (Nokia) with Christmas cheer.
#
# Usage: merryspam.py vcards names
#
# How do I get the "vcards"?
#
# gnokii --getphonebook ME 1 end -v > ME.vcards
# gnokii --getphonebook SM 1 end -v > SM.vcards
# cat ME.vcards SM.vcards > vcards
#
# How do I get the "names"?
#
# grep "^FN:" vcards | cut -c 4- > names
#
# Then edit for the "names" you /actually/ want to receive cheer.
#
# (Careful, "names" will have \r\n style newlines.)
