Fares Data

I'm going to start looking at librailfare (http://librailfare.sourceforge.net/) for fare data. Looks like it could be a high performance way of getting detailed fares data.

My C is a little rusty so I'm working my way through "Learn C the hard way". (http://c.learncodethehardway.org/) It's still in Alpha but the overall structure seems to be there. Nothing too groundbreaking yet but I'm liking the style. I'm running Windows on my laptop so I've got Ubuntu Server in a VM for my compilation needs . Should be a good excuse to take my Vim skills to the next level too!

Once I've got the code compiling and I can query fares data I need to decide what to do with it. Current thoughts are porting it to Java (useful for me), porting it to .Net (useful for someone else) and/or exposing a web API to it.
