Hi, I am looking for a program that I can deploy as an agent to inform me of a new postings to a certain website. I would like the program to run every few minuts and return only entries that 1) were entered after the last run and 2) those that meet the criteria.
A manual search of the site requires me to pass about 6 or 7 parameters before I get the results back. I also have to visually filter the returned set to get the new listings. This is very time consuming and ineffective. I would like to automate the process. If someone can write a program which can accomplish this for me please let me know. I would like to be able to run the program on my PC. As an extra ( I am welling to pay extra for this feature) If I can be alerted once a new entry has been detected through email or a page to a pager.
To better understand what I am looking for, go to and try searching for 1996 Ford Crown Victoria, you will get a set back. Now if you do the same search an hour or a day later, you might get most of the set back if not all plus some new ones. I am interested in the new ones after the first run on a continouse basis. My goal is to know about a car as soon as it is listed. If you need any further info please email with your questions. Thank you,

Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

Complete copyrights to all work purchased.

The program can be fully tested by the userand my self. I need to have a working copy of the software which will meet my requirments listed above. I will sum it up in ( a software that will work as an agent to find and inform me of a new entries into a certain website. ) everytime the program runs it should do a search on the website based on the parameters I will pass to it and filter the new entries from the last run. I would like the program to be flexible as far as how often it can be run. As an extra, I need a way to get alarted once a car or list of cars is found. The alert can be as simple as a small email or a text page saying " a new car was found". attached a file with the three pages of the website you need to look at:
first is the main
second is where I enter the criteria
third is the returned set Remeber, I don't want the program to return the whole set, ONLY the new ones since the last run.

platform is PC , windows 95 and up and IE 5 and up.

Must be 100% finished and received by buyer on:

Jun 30, 2002 EDT
Deadline legal notes: All times are expressed in the time zone of the site EDT (UT - 5). If the buyer omitted a time, then the deadline is 11:59:59 PM EDT on the indicated date.

Special Conditions / Other:
This project might be replicated to other sites. If I am satisfied with the work I will get you more business. I am welling to pay extra for those who are welling to give me a prototype ( or finished software ) earlier than 6/30/2002.

Additional Files:
This bid request includes IMPORTANT additional attached files. Please download and read fully before bidding.

Remember that contacting the other party outside of the site (by email, phone, etc.) on all business projects < $500 (before the buyer's money is escrowed) is a violation of both the software buyer and seller agreements. We monitor all site activity for such violations and can instantly expel transgressers on the spot, so we thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you notice a violation please help out the site and report it. Thanks for your help.

I have done similar work before and I know I can do a very good job here.

As of now I have this in mind. The program will run in the system tray and check the website every few minutes for a search term. You can set the time period and search term from a 'options' dialog. It will maintain a list of all the entries it finds. As soon as it finds a new one it can sound a beep or show a window. I can also add the feature to send a notification email to you (If you know your mobile/pager email address it can also send a mesage to it).

I am willing to add more features if required (like ability to perform multiple searches, perform searches within the entries downloaded, etc). I will finish the project in 2-3 weeks time (maybe less).

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Best Regards
