MythTV alerts on Laconica

Mark Waters had posted a method for posting recording alerts to Laconica. It's pretty cool in that it's only a shell command (no MythTV modules required!). The problem is that it relies upon the Rewrite command in .htaccess and appears to be written for a version of Laconica that's pre-0.7.

By looking at the commands in the suggested .htaccess and by multiple checks with the wget man page, I've come up with alternate syntax for those that are running Laconica 0.7 and don't have the ability to instantiate .htacess. I've wiki-fied my notes for MythTV Laconica alerts.
