Submission + - Datamining Orkut

pity_me_I_use_access writes: "Here's the deal. I'm a management type who used to be a techie. The project I'm working on requires me to mine information about members of my organization off orkut. Specifically, we're only interested in learning which members of our organisation are fans of other members of our organisation. i.e. The Member — Member.Fan relationship. Since orkut requires people to log in, the simple perl scripts I use won't work (and I'm not half the techie I used to be, so I can't make it work now). I'd like to know if there's an easy way to pull this off. Beware, the database we're using (if you can call it that) is MS Access 2003.

If there happens to be a readymade solution to this problem, my team and I will dance at the wedding of whoever suggests it. We do have limited perl skills, so minor scripting should not be a problem."

Most public domain software is free, at least at first glance.
