App for watching Courses automatically

For all the Dartmouth students who are struggling to find their Spring courses, I wrote an app that will monitor full courses and tell you when there is an availability via email.

Here is the code on github:

Basically, given the class you want to search, it scrapes Dartmouth's Course timetable online via post requests and then looks for the appropriate cells. Then it will sleep for half a minute, or however long you want, before checking again. If there is an availability, it will notify you via email.

Feel free to fork and improve on it.
