We need a tool that will essentially grab data from a website on a daily basis. Example of a manual process that we need the tool to automate :
Step 1: Visit [login to view URL]
Step 2: Click on New York Times [most current date] from the list
Step 3: Click on New York Times [most current date] from the list again
Step 4: Copy the list of clues
----> Repeat for all of the crossword puzzles listed below
Step 5: Put the list of all copied clues from all puzzles into a single text file and email it to me.
We are open to using a scraping tool service if you can set it up and get it running.
