PLEASE READ SO YOU KNOW WHAT IM LOOKING FOR:
I need a script, which I will execute via a cron. This script, when run, will query my DB to get a list of Site URL's that we need to thumbnail. A thumbnail will be generated for each site, the thumbnail saved to 'x' directory on my server, and the DB updated for that URL, with the path to the thumbnail.
I operate a Linux server with PHP5x and MySql 5x.
I do prefer for this script to generate the thumbnails on my own server. I do not prefer to use an outside thumbnailing service, simply because they are unreliable, here today, and gone tommorow.
I will -consider- an outside source, depending on who the source is. The thumbnail will be the size that -I- specify, not the size that the site specifies.
Best of luck in your Bidding.
