Sorry for not getting back sooner (had a fun n'busy weekend :)). I found some free anonymous proxies for my scraper and I've gotten the info you requested from the Yellow Pages in a previous comment. After you remove duplicates you get at most 242 businesses (and there are more duplicates with different phone numbers). Since I've already done it here's an unaudited comma delimited text file which "should" be right. Jamie n pay the gesture forward with his free time to others :)

Hi everyone, thanks a lot for your bids.
Awesome Tim! I've have a look when I return home.
Michael Z - take a look at (Aussie guy doing some cool stuff to help out with this...)
I've just written a scraping program in PHP to achieve what you need from Yellow Pages and as is to be expected with so much repetitive data requests, my IP has just been blocked by "Sensis" for unusual activity :) It says you can get access to an API if you register (maybe it costs money...). I'll let you know if they unblock me again (just in case, what is the specific search you need so I can do it before I get banned again).
