App to grab news feeds

Need a faceless application (.exe) for Windows that grabs a news feed, saves it to a file, then quits.

Faceless means there is no user interface.

Here is what it does:

1) read a text file containing the feed URL - it will be named "[url removed, login to view]" and reside in the same folder as this application.

use the feed URL in the Visual Basic code snippet below to test

2) grab the feed data

3) write the feed data to a text file named "[url removed, login to view]" and save it in the same folder as this application.

4) quit

5) If the [url removed, login to view] file does not exist or the feed cannot be downloaded after 10 seconds, the application must quit

Here is a Visual Basic code snippet that does the grab of a news stream:

Dim data As Stream = [url removed, login to view]("[url removed, login to view]")

Dim reader As New [url removed, login to view](data)

Dim feeddata As String = [url removed, login to view]()

Dim file As [url removed, login to view]

file = [url removed, login to view]("c:\[url removed, login to view]", False)

[url removed, login to view](feeddata)

[url removed, login to view]()

[url removed, login to view]()

Another demo URL for a news stream: "[url removed, login to view]"
