I need someone to write a script that can read a number off of a gif picture file that is updated every few minutes. The number is a 6 digit number that is about font size 12(color white) with a black background. The area of the number never changes. The number you have to read is always in the same area of the image.

I then need that number to be turned into text form and update a mysql table. this needs to happen say every 15 to 20 minutes either with a cron job or automatically with a script that you will write.

Steps are

1. read number off image
2. update mysql database with new number
3. put number with date time stamp into a history table in same database.

This sounds pretty simple and i dont want to spend alot on it. I would like to see previous work before i choose a provider.

This will be on a linix server using php and mysql.
