I need to get data from a specific newpaper website. The task can easily be automated by a skilled scraper. Only challenge is the need to route your requests as the website times out the connection after a few hundred hits. I would like the scraper to write the code in python and go over it with me over skype. I have a list of names which need to be searched in a newspaper database by year and state and then get the count of articles it give. Simple as that. There are some technical issues related to the site using an AJAX request to display the number of results which I dont fully understand. A skilled programmer should be able to deal with it in a few minutes. I expect us to spend 1 hour on skype discussing it and running the script till it work.
