Save the wikiclock

It's no big secret that the wikiclock gets a lot of wiki spam.

This is the kind of thing that you might want an HTML element-grabbing script for. (script: element)

That way you can just do something like...

element myel_text | \
grep -q http && echo 'oh no! Save the wikiclock!'

Now pipe that to your favorite microblog client and, well, you still don't know what time it is yet, but check back in a few minutes to see if someone has gotten your tweet/dent/whatever and fixed the wikiclock.
