Just $.02

Try this at the begining of your script, just in case the "remaining
part of the HTML page" stays stuck in a buffer. This makes all IO being
flushed with the print command.

select (STDOUT);
$|=1;  # prevents output buffering


PS: I missed this month meeting. Got stuck at work. Too bad. I missed
you guys ;-) Merry Christmas.
