    err ok then the process of trnsferring the posts is manualMean you should click a button or something?)
    for vb.net the easiest would ve to have a web browser control then access page elements (but you can use webrequest to get the content then use the same method)

    and if you like you can use a php script to leech then customize it to send the results to your app
    ny or method not going to be easy but not soo hard
