I knew that the request seems identical in both cases. That's why I came
here for suggestions. Perhaps when I get some sleep I'll start thinking out
of the box :)  I did not get any sleep in 41 hours.  I really appreciate
your effort in trying to help me.  I think I'll go with the web bot solution
for now.

I wish a could tell you what it's all about.  I should be able to reveal
more when the project is finished.
