Anyhow, so I decided to start using the Java code from Opilion for crawling tasks for BadgerComp.com.
I probably will continue building on the image getter first. I'm thinking that you will want to upload them straight somewhere. Probably via FTP. Or you could download them to your local hard disk first.
I'll probably make the tool available via the BadgerCart Wiki, but it might be getting annoying to enter the user details all the time. Maybe I need to be able to load settings via XML?
