tabula: best thing ever

I just discovered Tabula, which converts PDFs into a form that can be saved as a csv or other usable data format. 

If you know the pain of having beautiful data right there in front of you but in a form you can’t use at all, you’ll understand how fantastic this is.  It’s like you’re staring through the window of a candy store as a kid, and somebody opens the door, invites you inside, and says that you can have anything you want (take all of it, if you want).
