Search 5 newspapers classified ads then email me results

I would like Script written to search 5 newspaper site’s to see if a classified ad has been placed on their site.

I’m just tired of going to these sites day after day. So I want this script to notify me.

Once a day it would search the site using their own search engine. Then if a add is found it would send me and My son’s an email with the ad captured. I would then read my emails to contact them if I wanted to buy the item.

The script would be hosted on my home server. (Red hat Linux 9.0) I will not open this to the public.

The only access will be behind a website. I will click on an icon and enter with a username and password.

No website, just an admin section Listed below.

Admin will cover:

1. Username password login access (Add, Remove, change password, and so forth)

2. Keyword changes

3. Edit the Email delivery addresses (add, remove as my email changes or my son’s)

4. Date and Time the script will be run

5. a do not run option

I'm open to ideas and suggestions.

The script can be of your choosing. I would like a good documentation for editing purposes. Or incase I need to find a different programmer to fix this because you have gotten to busy and the newspaper site changes the website.

I will list the 5 sites below so you can go in and see how easy or hard this would be for bidding purposes.

Here is the first suggested newspaper: (My local Paper)

[url removed, login to view];SubLoc=240

Here is the second one, bigger population than the first: (One of my son’s Papers)

I will need this to also search both the regular classifieds and the thrifties part of this newspaper

[url removed, login to view];parent=Thrifties

these are the less then $500.00 items.

They are cheaper ads, not categorized, but they do carry a search engine to find it.

Third newspaper: My next son’s paper

[url removed, login to view]

I like the search engine here.

Forth newspaper: near my home

[url removed, login to view];main=Recreational#Boats_and_Equipment

Fifth newspaper: small paper near me

[url removed, login to view]

A very Small town paper.

Just to make sure we are on the same page.

When you place your bid, tell me how you will do this so I know you are capable of doing it.

There are so many bids that say they can do this, and then I find out that they can’t.

I really don't think any dbase will be needed, because the site will not store the data.

In short collect it then dump it to an email then wait until the next day.

If you have any other questions, please post them.

I have seen bids that just say we can do this. I want to see in your bid how you plan on doing it. Then I will know you really can. You can leave it in a private message.

Thanks
