Is there any software which facilitates downloading of utility bills and similar from online-only accounts?
Preferably open source, and customizable for different providers.
At least where I live, there is a tendency for all electricity, gas, water, telephone, Internet and television providers, banks and so on to provide online account management and statements instead of sending you anything by post. This prevents some issues if you change accounts, or are temporarily without Internet/computer access, or lock yourself out of your account or even possibly if you have a dispute with the provider.
It occurred to me that it would be simple to create a utility to script the downloading of regular statements (which tend to be available in PDF format anyway), and dump them either on your own computer, or on some personal document management system or online service (maybe Google Docs or Evernote?). The only hard part would be customizing a script to navigate each provider's website. I'll start something myself if I need to, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel. I've have looked around for this but either it doesn't exist.
