Hi Rufus,

Just updated my local code (having looked a little at lunch time). Looks 
better now. The only difference I get from the local version and the 
opencorrespondence one is that the/ data/endpoint link doesn't work on 
live for some reason and throws a 500 error but its fine on my local 

The date needs to be turned into human friendly form from the database 
which is in a basic iso format to reduce the need for transforming it 
each time for json, xml and so on. Something for Saturday?

PS:  I'm still trying to get into the genshi/pylons way of doing things. 
I'll get there. Eventually. Hopefully. :)
