    I'm looking for a computer programmer who can can pull information off of websites in an automated fashion. For example, If the realtor associations (or the state licensing boards) list the addresses, you should be able to pull it off the website. Should also be able to send mass e-mails and make them stick.
    My previous geek earned between 7K-13K/month working for me.

    Please PM me if you are interested.

    Cheers!!!

    Just wondering if you have a website setup to send emails thru. I'm curious about the amount of work that would be involved in this...

    If the person knows what they are doing and can do exactly as I mentioned in my first post, then it's not time consuming. The person who used to do this for me worked a couple of hours every few days and was doing other things too..She made the transition into another vertical... Anyways...Cheers!

    I can get the job done. I'll use CURL and PHP to parse the information and use the mail function in PHP to get this done.

    Hmm, I didn't see his wanting to constantly mass emailing. All I understood was he wanted something to stick. I guess we need further details on this project to see whether products will fit his need.

    By " making them stick" I meant, when the email is sent it should be inboxed and not end up in the spam folder.

    If you guys think this is a piece of cake for you then I wanna hear back.

    Timeout is not the problem you can make it run forever if you wish.
