Dell Scraper

Due to failings in the past, our inventory system is in need of a revamp as it is missing both systems and information as part of the revamp we decided to scrap everything we new and reinventroy everything. We use a lot of dell systems and I figured that as we had collected the service tags of a number of systems we could get the info about that system from the dell site. I wrote a quick python script to take a list of service tags and output the system info as a csv file in the format “tag, shipdate, SysType, Ram, HDD, Support”.

E.g.

"4GXCB1H","2008-03-29","Latitude D430","2GB","80GB","3Y NBD INTERNATIONAL (NEXT BUSINESS DAY);UPG TO 4Y NBD INTERNATIONAL (NEXT BUSINE"

Site revamp

With the change of the year I have decided to give the site a complete make over.

As I get time I’ll repopulate the old data.

I haven’t decided if I’ll bring the wiki back or not yet, if there is demand I will bring it back but if not I think I’ll just keep the site as simple as possible. Also due to the revamp my email address for this site is out of action for a while (I was getting a lot of spam in it anyhow), until I get a chance to fix it so post here and I’ll get back to you.

Please be patient as I have just moved house and have no internet, so I am having to do the site updates on my lunch hour.
Sorry to those that took the time to register, you’ll need to re-register as I am taking this chance to clear out the hundreds of spam accounts. Read More
