I need an application to run on a Linux machine that given a URL will return a thumbnail image of that page. I will give you an account on a Linux box and work with you on any libraries you may need (Xwin, Firefox, etc). This will be turned into a web service for my own site, not as a resale service. I'm fairly open to language choice, but to this point the other pieces of the project are developed mostly in Python and C, so they are preferred. I look forward to your bids!
