We are looking for an application that can retrieve a server generated value from Ticketmaster before an event goes onsale. It is a HIDDEN value named SIG that is generated when an event goes on-sale. The SIG value is good for 5 minutes then retires and a new SIG value must be retrieved. I'm looking to force Ticketmaster to Generate a SIG value 30 seconds to 1 minute before an event goes on-sale. We are only looking for that value before the on-sale begins, not after. I need a SIG value generator that will go out to Ticketmaster and generate a SIG value on their server and pass it back to us to use for the initial on-sale of tickets. We do not want to hack the site - we just went to predetermine a valid SIG value for the initial on-sale of a predetermined event. The best way to test this is to access an event that is not on-sale yet for a response from Ticketmaster on that event and see if it generates a SIG value. We have been unsuccessful to this point and are looking for some real web/application gurus to put together a simple application interface that will give us that value before an event is even on-sale. If this is not possible in your professional opinion please let us know as not to waste anyone's time or effort.
Any reasonable bid will be accepted. We would like to purchase a program that is complete and will do the above for us. We would also like a copy of the source code but do not need the complete copyrights on the code or work. If it works the way we envision we may be able to negotiate copyright purchases after testing.
Operating Systems: Windows 2000, XP Development Platforms: Visual Basic 6 or a DLL created in C++ that can be referenced by VB6 or any other language that you see fit for an application.
## Deadline information
We would like to purchase an application or Plug-in that already accomplishes our objective along with source code. Any reasonable bid accepted.
