One of the websites I need to scrape requires me to login via a form before it displays prices.  I would like to scrape it with the prices.  How can I do this?

The site is  , I need to login on the upper right "login" link before prices are displayed.

I have a mac and and a PC so I can use sitesucker (which always seems to crash after a while) or httrack.
