Getting tired of mandatory OCD

An annoying but necessary part of my job is logging into a company website and checking to see if a number has gone up. If it has gone up, I start working on stuff to make the number go down. Checking the website every five seconds gets boring really fast and really cuts into the time I spend working on other things. Does anyone know of some programs out there that will automate this checking and notify me if the number has gone up? More deets inside! [more inside]

How do I make simple dynamic web pages using perl?

How should I develop simple dynamic web pages using perl? Does anyone have any suggestions on how best to produce simple web pages in perl that execute logic (e.g., opening property documents to retrieve property values and saving back changes). I am new to perl and would like some detail instructions or links to tutorials. Would a framework like Mason be overkill?

Automatically PDF a website?

How can I automate printing a complete website to PDF?

I need to be able to show what the site looked like on any given date. The site is a sales tool and therefore requires user input on every page, so simply spidering the site is not adequate.

Because the site requires user input all over the place, I'd somehow need to supply the tool with data so it could be fully automated.

Are there tools out there that could do this?

Note: It doesn't necessarily have to be output to PDF, just something manageable and static.

DHTML-ish function question...

I keep trying to come up with a generalized way to scale a webpage image in a gradual fashion using JavaScript. I can do it in a specific way (with one hard-coded named image); it's the generalized form (that would work with any rolled-over image) that's giving me fits... [more inside]
