Hello All,

I am not really a hardcore programmer but I heard Python and MySQL would be the best approach for what I want to accomplish. I have an appliance that logs data on a second by second basis. I can access the appliance using http to get an XML of it. What I want to do is create a script to on the 55 of every hour download the last hours worth of data and not import duplicates (5 minute overlap just in case there is a timing issue and to not miss anything) into MySQL table. Is Python the best approach to do this or should I look elsewhere? And an example script would be very helpful, too! Thank You!!!
