How to record streaming data in a java window with windows X

I would like to record a streaming flow of stock bid and ask prices, that show in a small window of a full page from the Lycos web service. My wish is to record this to a cd rw or a dvd rw drive so I can slow the sometimes high speed flow and read the pricing information. I am running windows XP on a home computer. I have a HP dvd 640i DVD writer that I could install into the computer if this would be the best way to record this. I also am on a dial up connection that averages around 42kbs. I am able to view this data and another Java window data stream with out any problems. I have two monitors and a dual monitor card with processor and 128 mb of memory. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

Not really possible

The Java applet likely is streaming that data, and is thus discarding it as soon as it's not needed anymore. The only possibility I can think up would be to get a program that automatically takes screenshots at very short intervals and can use some sort of naming system so you can keep them in order. I don't know of any such program, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist somewhere.

You may have to experiment a bit but...

you might consider looking over and trying out some or all of the following (to see which suits) -

Assuming your Lycos stream is indeed LiveQuotes (or LiveQuotes based) you may already have the ability to save the data to a greater or lesser degree depending on which you are subscribed to

Your best option is to contact whoever is doing the streaming and ask them as we can't support "backdoor" methods to subvert the prerogatives of the property owner.
