if you have vb5, then you can use the activex controll that is an ie browser, but just make it hidden.  then you can set the location of the hidden browser controll to your cgi file on the net, while it doesn't open any visible browser windows.
nice idea?  :-)
if you need help making a browser, i can help you.
