[Durham] Something topical - urlwatch

I've been checking https://www.shipton-mill.com/queue regularly. I'm a 
regular shipton customer but it's a level playing field at the moment. 
I've had no success bagging a slot.

It may not be very sporting, but I decided to try urlwatch to keep an 
eye on the page. It's a very sparsely documented util but I've had 
success with it in the past. However when I try it on the Shipton Mill 
queue I think they have some sort of wizardry that causes a refresh 
every time. I tried curl too without any success.

Not having flour isn't causing me too much grief, but not being able to 
work out urlwatch is. I can't even get it to send me an email. The 
documentation suggests using your gmail account but I'd rather just get 
urlwatch to send an email from the command line but I've not worked that 
one out.

Hope everyone is ok. I'm digging a hole for a wildlife pond and playing 
with Linux, so I've no complaints.
