CODE OF CONDUCT

While using the Site or Site-related services, you agree not to do any of the following without our prior written authorization:
...
• Use any search engine, software, tool, agent or other device or mechanism, including without limitation browsers, spiders, robots, avatars or intelligent agents (other than those made available by Dice on the Site or other generally available third party web browsers, e.g., Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer), to navigate or search the Site.
...
• Use any robot, spider, site search/retrieval application, or other manual or automatic device or process to retrieve, index, "data mine," or in any way reproduce or circumvent the navigational structure or presentation of the Site or its contents.

Anywho, the site sets a cookie. I don't know if the fields change but a couple were different from the fields you had listed. I'd recommend looking at Firebird with the Live HTTP Headers extension installed.

    I'm no lawyer, but it seems from this statement as though you can only use a browser if it is 'generally available'. What is LWP but another browser? It is generally available -- anyone can download and use it if they like. Just because it doesn't have a GUI shouldn't change anything. Of course, I will never subject myself to the legal headache of trying to find out. Besides, I've never had great luck with dice anyway...
