hi all

I wondered is there a way of grabbing an image from a url like and storing either in a blob into mysql or
into a directory on my box.

I have been given some image urls in an xml feed after logging. I can show
the image as it is from the url i am given in the xml feed but I wanted the
images to look like they came (or actually does come from) my box.

anyone got any ideas?
