This may be incredibly basic, but the code that I use to scrape sites from  
elsewhere at OSU is:

url = (definition of URL to be scraped - usually the University's master  
room schedule to find out what they think is going on in our building)
set http = server.CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP.3.0")
http.open "GET",url,false
Dim wwc
wwc = http.ResponseText

(prepare wwc contents to strip off head and body tags, or otherwise get  
ready for display)

set http = Nothing
