started work on a scraper & i have a really annoying problem of getting 
fopen to work.

ie this sort of thing:

 $fail = "failed";
                $remote = @fopen ($link, "rb");
                if (!$remote){
                        print($link." FAILED");
                        return $fail;

im wondering if its to do with system variables being set by the

other programs using this function where working fine but now, they

Have they upgraded PHP? Is SAFE MODE on? Have the file permissions
