Please don't flame me for asking this. I really want to be able to get a feed of live football (UK soccer) scores and process them using something VisualBasic and post the results onto a new website. It's just for myself and some friends at the moment.
What I really want to do is, after making a football bet, analyse the results as they come in live and SMS someone if the latest score is a part of someone's bet.
Some betting sites do provide this I'm sure, but it's just something that I'd like to crack myself. A pet project if you like.
Any ideas, examples, sources etc. gratefully accepted.
