    I need to submit articles to many directories, how do i do this faster?

    am thinking of catching submit pages or use multithreading with the httpweb class,

    can you give your advise?

    I suck at programming concepts, but it can be automated to some extent using iMacros, a free FF plugin. Also if you don't mind spending money, you can try Articles submitting software - Article Marketing Robot.

    if you're using vb6, you're in the wrong section. although i highly recommend going with .NET

    in vb6 (mind you it's been a while) you would need to create an array of winsock controls.

    but really you would be best off in the short term and long term ditching that apartment threaded bloat hog and picking up .NET. it's not that difficult to make the jump.

    then you have the full power of all the .NET threading resources and things like HTTPWebRequest and System.Net.Sockets namespace.

    well that depends on what you mean by caching. you're really asking a very broad architectural question.

    it depends on how the site(s) you're submitting to are set up. it could very well be that you need to request the page each time and parse unique values, or it could be the case that you could simply fake the refer and genera the form on the fly. it varies from site to site.

    if you make it multithreaded though "caching" becomes less and less important.
