We need a script to scrape a list of usernames from a site that match/fulfil a certain pattern for their username and their profile. This pattern is made up from a string from one or more lookup lists plus some regular expressions added to it. The script should populate a database table containining the username plus other specifics such as source where it was found and optional fields like registration date, birthdate, hobbies, profile-url from source, e-mail address if present and other details of profiles found to be specified on a per source basis. Technically the script should be prepared to later pass all HTTP gets thru our proprietary multiget/proxy class but the bidder can provide a slower, serialized version as long as the http gets are serialized. The script should store it's processing state and already processed usernames as it goes, so that it doesn't lose all data if it crashes unexpected. We expect the script to have some intelligent batching logic so that it can be restarted after a crash without having to redo everything over and over again.
