    I am looking for someone to help me with a data mining project.I already have the necessary PHP / MySQL code, i am only looking for an infrastructure solution.The script gets some data from a URL like http://example.com/userid/123456 using file_get_contents. Then it goes through the HTML and stores several values in a MySQL database. Simple.What i need is to process 35.000.000 (35 million) of queries in a relatively short time span (ideally under one week). I am open to different solutions, you can either use your infrastructure, create a proxy cluster and send me the details, or something else.There is a limit of query speed per second on the target server and it"s about 2 per second per one IP.I will release the payment once the data is gathered and i receive and verify a CSV or SQL file (can be in parts).

    The project is for a retail business. The business website needs new products updated via a .xls spread sheet. You will be supplied with a .xls spreadsheet template with approximately 300 products covering multiple brands listed on it. Budget is $90. For each product there needs to be a correct description filled in and the correct image downloaded and saved with the corresponding name. This first field is the "Product Description".It is to be filled with a complete description & specifications taken from the official product website. Once job accepted will supply product details site details. (About five cut & pastes as there are several descriptions broken down into categories on the left hand side for each product). Html formatting need to remain intact. Best option would be to paste into Dreamweaver style WYSIWYG program first and once formatted nicely paste all five cuts as one entire description & specifications along with html into .xls template description field. The template already has the product heading tags inserted as a starting point. Description is to be inserted after the heading tags.Image EditingEach description must be accompanied with a photo.The photo must be of a large high quality, Large sharp hign quality images, not blurred.Not include not competitors watermarksThe official website most likely will be too small. If you do a Google image search make sure the product is the correct image.Product photo must be loaded into the supplied "Web-Product-Template.psd" template 1200x1200px and be saved as the name in the "Image Name" field found in the xls template.If it is long like a keyboard please place diagonally from corner to corner to maximize it"s size. Otherwise product image is to be aligned center top. See SOP Example.Image to be saved as a .jpg at 100% compression quality. 300kb or larger.All images to be zipped up into a single folder per brands once job is complete. Total of five folders.All images to have white background.The first product has been completed as an example included in the template, with image included.I will be checking the images and descriptions to confirm they are correct. Please ensure the images and descriptions are current and correct.

    We intend to scrape product data from a printer toner/ink website. For every product on the website we will create one SKU in our Magento Ecommerce store and import the associated data that has been scraped. The scraped data needs to be cleaned and modified to ensure it meets our Magento Ecommerce store data standards. We will use four CSV files to import the data.This tasks require that you scrape the data, clean and modify the data to meet our data standards, create four CSV files for import and import the data to our non-production Magento store.Navigation Structure:The website we want scrape is organised into this navigation structure:Brand > Category > Models > ProductsBrand Page:There are 16 brand categories currently for the following brands:BrandCanonDellEpsonHPKonica MinoltaKyoceraLanierLexmarkOKIPanasonicRicohSamsungSharpToshibaXeroxWithin each brand are one or more of the following categories:Ink CartridgesToner CartridgesThermal RollsCategory Page:Within each category page is a list of printer models.Models Page:Within each model page is a list of products that are for use with that printer model broken into product segments such as below:Compatible Brand Toner Value PackGenuine Brand Toner Value PackCompatible Brand TonerGenuine Brand TonerCompatible Brand Image DrumsGenuine Brand Image DrumsProduct Page:The final product page has the data that we intend to scrape. Each product page has a unique URL. The same product page will be linked from multiple printer model pages as one product is normally compatible with multiple printers.We need four CSV files created with the data that is scraped. The four CSV files we need created are:1) models.csv2) parts.csv3) product_type.csv4) products.csvFor each unique product URL we will create one product SKU in our Magento Ecommerce store. This is products.csv and product_type.csv.For each printer part/model we will cross reference the product SKU(s) that are compatible. For example, these parts/models:SKU1: PartY, ModelZSKU2: PartYSKU3: ModelZ… we will cross reference in our database like:PartY: SKU1, SKU2ModelZ: SKU1, SKU3This is parts.csv and models.csv*** Images need to be downloaded and will be referenced in the products.csv import file for import to our Magento Ecommerce store ***The scraped data needs to be cleaned and modified to ensure it meets our Magento Ecommerce store data standards.Once complete each CSV file is to be imported to our non-production Magento Ecommerce store.Existing ProductsOur Magento Ecommerce store currently has products from the website we intend to scrape. We will provide a list of product URLs (The unique product URLs from the website that is being scraped) that you do not need to import. After scraping the data from the website you can remove the product URLs that we provide so the same data is not imported twice.Data Cleaning and ModificationAn example of data cleaning and modification is:“HP LaserJet 1000” would be imported to our Magento Ecommerce store as “HP”,”LaserJet”,”1000”:The brand and series are both placed into their own separate column. Again, by looking at our existing store data you can clearly see that Laserjet is a series of HP and should be placed into a separate column.The product attribute “3,500 pages at 5% coverage” would be imported to our Magento Ecommerce store as “Approx. 3,500 pages at 5% coverage”:By looking at our existing attributes you can see that we use “Approx.” in our data.Important:It is your responsibility to test each file using our non-production Magento Ecommerce store to ensure all data is able to import successfully.

    Hello,I"m looking to have a web crawler made in either c++ or java, it can be up to whoever wins the project. This needs to be an application that can be run on any windows machine.The application should accept any number of starting urls and then begin to crawl them, going deeper and deeper to a specified depth. Theoretically it should be able to run forever non stop. When it crawls pages it should simply find mp3 files and then extract their id3 data. The application needs to connect to a remote sql server and insert this data into a database. Its fairly straight forward. There also needs to be a licensing system built. The way this will work is that the application will ask the user to input their license id when it is run, this is will then be sent to a remote server for verification. Let me know if anything is unclear.
