Jobs Database Update

I had a bit of an interruption today, but managed to make some progress on the database anyway. For starters, I worked out a way to store the results of a search in a database, including the URL linking to each individual posting. Of course, that also required throwing together a script to dump the contents of the database so I can see what's happening.

Later I modified yesterday's script for retrieving my job applications so that it updates the database with application data, such as when I applied for a given job and whether my application is still pending.

Tomorrow I plan to finish integrating the application data into the jobs listings I see, as well as store the important search terms with each job, and then start on a proxy to help modify each individual listing by highlighting relevant search terms and adding yes/no/maybe buttons, as well as updating the database when those buttons are clicked.
