Screen Capture
I've been debating whether to make this post or not as I'm only in the early development stages but I want to hear any ideas or suggestions you have.

I'm planning on creating an application in C#.NET that will grab the URL's from your Links SQL directory and then create screen captures of the websites. The application will not use any third-party software or components so will be very flexible. It will most likely consist of a GUI front-end for configuration purposes and then a windows service for generating the images.

For now I intend to continue development using C# however I am tempted to experiment with Perl XS allowing me to use C++ with a Perl front-end, which may make it more user-friendly for developers and will also have the added bonus of being platform independent.

Does anyone have any suggestions or comments?
