Project Description

there are two websites that post Auto Accident reports (one via PDF and the other not sure). They upload these reports at random throughout the day. We have a staff member looking at the websites and constantly refreshing them in order to be first to see the newly uploaded Accident reports. We gather time sensitive information from these reports and it is imperative to locate these reports immediately after the site uploads them.

I am in search of program(s) that will automatically search for newly uploaded reports every 1-5 seconds and either send notification or actually open the file.
