Re: new thread - dbcode programming?
The code for the site is already under source control with Subversion. Most of the code is Perl, there's maybe a thousand lines of Javascript, there's heavy use of CSS (especially for the upcoming dynamic menus), plus good old HTML. Anyone who would like to join the development team should let me know. I'll give them Subversion access and set them up on the server with their own copy of the board that they can play with.

brother RAZD has brought my name up in regards to software development, but i must say right at the outset that i have virtually no Perl experience, being an old Fortran and C - that's C, not C++ - coder from pre-OOP days. i know awk, sed, the usual unix suspects and i do have a tiny bit of java experience, but not javascript. the game appearing in my avatar is in java. what i might be able to do is make wishes in the beginning. if i could help, i'd be glad to roll up my sleeves. infact, it would probably be good exercise for me to gear up market skills. i've got some books.

but right away the Big Grok of the copied area would be daunting.

hmmm.

the little boat - Noah's Ark or HMS Beagle?
I have noticed in my new firefox browser that the EvC pages all have a little picture of a big blue boat with black smoke stacks and red cabins up in the URL box, at the left edge.

Is this not a Happy Accident that I cannot tell whether it is supposed to be Noah's Ark or the HMS Beagle?

I'm not sure where this little observation should go, so I stuck it here at the end.
