I am writing a windows phone app that displays scores for certain sports. I contacted a particular site and have been granted permission to use their feed but they won't provide me a xml feed or api and have said that I must convert the data from their site to a format that I can use myself.

Using .Net, I had a go with downloading the site with a WebClient and searching for the information that way. This works fine.

When I deployed the app to my phone it didn't work. I tried going to the site via my phone and it seems that my network provider has blocked the site as its over 18 (gambling I guess).

Anyway, is there away that I can do the above on my web site and have that return the data I am after?

UPDATE: I am a .net man so I would normally try using asp.net/webservice but my site is hosted on Linux. I notice I can create rubys on rails apps. Is there anything I can do with this?

what's your interest
