new to the community

Hi everyone, I'm new to the community and would like to introduce myself! I'm a pretty good JavaScript programmer but my experience with GreaseMonkey is less so with only about 2 scripts under my belt. I'm fascinated with greasemonkey's xmlhttprequest object and it's ability to send cross-domain requests. I'm planning to write some kind of web crawler with it (pairing it with PHP and MySQL) and thought Craigslist would be a good testing ground for it - say crawling a section in craigslist for 2 weeks and then mine the information for interesting statistics - a project purely for the fun of it.

Has anyone tried anything like this before?
