Fast text entry?

I have a list of things I need to add through an HTTP interface every once and a while, but the system in place is very archaic and doesn't allow me to use something like a spreadsheet or comma delimited list to make the process easier.

For a bit I was using Ghost Mouse to copy and paste and submit that way but it seems kind of ridiculous and sometimes even more time consuming.

I know they have things like Textpander and TypeIt4Me for Mac systems, but is there anything like that for Windows XP? It would help my job considerably. A press of the Enter key will also work as a "click" on the submit button, so the program should preferably do that (and be free but I'll pay if it's the only way).

    see if you can get direct access to the database instead of using the http interface. Alternatively, code your own http interface.

    Do this. Just look at the source and check out how the form submits. Most likely, it'll work through POST requests. Write a little program in VB or something to read off of a CSV and send POST requests for you.
