comment How can I learn to effectively write Pythonic code?
@phresnel, I agree, reverse=True is much clearer. I just wanted to show the use of an arbitrary function to influence the sort order. As for the assignments, I find the compressed version much readable, of course, provided the number of vars assigned to does not exceed say, 3.

comment How to get started with this project?
There are good chances that the system will be protected against automated registrations via, say, a captcha. But if that is not the case, start reading up on how to program HTTP in your language. The registration will very likely be an HTML form, which you can simulate by sending an HTTP POST request with appropriate parameters (for that, you'll need to have a look at the actual HTML page that shows the registration form)
