OT: autosave of google alert sites?



Hi,

I know this is not a Fedora specific question but perhaps if someone here 
knows of a solution we could discuss the matter off list.

I get google news alerts every day on a variety of topics. These are short 
text snippets with URLs to (typically) newspaper articles on-line. But 
sometimes I go away and don't check for a few weeks. Some, I think a lot, of 
newspapers, have a policy of taking down pages after an interval. Access 
subsequently is either lost or behind a fee barrier.

In an ideal world, I would be able to have a daily program (script?) run that 
would examine that day's alerts, resolve the URLs and save the pages. Then 
when I get around to reading them they are safely tucked away on my hard 
drive.

Does anyone know of a way to do this?
