---- Monitoring Directory Listings: Are Thumbnail ScreenShots A Panacea for Site Re-Review?

Here's a simplified sample of the .bat file I run on a scheduler to show you how simple it was to create a screen shot server.
REM download list of URIs c:\curl\curl.exe "http://www.example.com/get-url-list.php" > url-list.txt
REM generate screen shots "C:\Program Files\examplescreenshottool\examplescreenshottool.exe" /in url-list.txt
REM upload to server directory ftp -s:exampleftp.txt del url-list.txt
There are a few support files behind this, like the XML file that defines the size of the screen shots being made and the FTP commands being sent, but it's all simple stuff that any webmaster could do.
The "get-url-list.php" is the only coding possibly required on the server side if you don't already have some exporting functions available.
