I've been hanging low, lately, prepping for the big ride this weekend.

Worked on some of my HTML::Element based classes last night, trying to utilize the new methods provided by HTML::Element whenever possible. As it turns out, I really wasn't able to deprecate many of my prior enhancments because the author of HTML::Element has a tendency to rifle through the object data structures directly, for efficiency...so a method invoked in an object higher in the tree structure a) directly accesses the structures of objects further down the tree, and b) makes assumptions about that structure.

Bad Programmer. No biscuit.

In response to starshine, regarding names vs faces. I too, am better with faces, and was a regular LISA attendee from around '93 to '97. Perhaps the facesaver database could be of assistance. I know I'm in there, somewhere, but I'm having trouble getting to the site at the moment. (at least, it's a younger version of me...haven't updated it in a while).
