    Hey all

    right basically what i want to make is something which searches for me across the internet for something specific.

    say if i wanted it to find whatever it could about CES2006 i could just type that in and leave it to let it find pages and information for me, and set it up so if the webpage has CES on it once it doesnt bother, but with pages that have links on them to videos and pictures from CES etc.

    anyone catching my drift,

    btw that CES was just an example i want to be able to change the content it searches for and set it to create a folder and put it all into one folder.

    Is any of this making sense?

    Is this possible?

    Is it legal?

    im just curious :)

    thanks people. :)

    I'm pretty sure Google already beat you to it.

    To be rather more constructive, you scrape Google's results for certain keywords and save the links or even the links' content to your hard drive if you like.
