Need to consult someone who is an expert in python/mechanize or other windows/linux browser automation that can do the following
1) Be as fast as possible ...MS make a difference.
2) Automate complex website with user login, https, cookies and complex payment processing checkout cycle on secure site.
Lets consult, see if we're on the same page. If so, lets develop some crazy applications!
This is not website scraping, it's repeating a dynamic process as fast as possible without use of browser.
