    We were scraping from Yahoo but they made a change last week and now we are blocked. Need someone who can get us back up and running. We scan live stocks and proprietary algorithm to send day trade alerts.

    OP:
    If your existing system is written in PHP - I can help. Have 7 years experience in PHP and 8 years in Intraday trading.

    Can you tell us more about the previous scraper ? What's the language written with ? Does the scraper have a graphical user interface (GUI) ?
    Add me on skype to discuss more about the scraper. I can make an excellent scraper.
