Very crudely :-)  It's just a display, really.

Nope, I keep seeing the stuff on the list and being very interested,
but I just don't have nights free to come to the talks at this point,
unfortunately!  I will be sure to look at the talks online tho, thanks
Scott :-)


Interesting!  Will check this out, thanks!

You're welcome to our code, if it helps.  For those of us doing
commercial programming, I think we should try to "factor out" as much
as possible into modules that can be submitted to CPAN, so that we can
all contribute/extend, rather than re-inventing the wheel.  (But I am
preaching open source to the converted, I expect :-)
