To Perl or not to Perl...what a stupid question
I finally updated my Apache::Motd early this morning around 1am! My next tasks related to this module is to remove the dependancy of Apache::Cookie. I love the module and all but, I think I can do the cookie setting from myself. However, the big feature that I do want to inplement is incorporating some type of url-based sessions. This will solve the cookieless clients. I hope I do not take as long as I did to make these last changes.

Well, I finally completed my requirements for three personal projects that are in the works. Of course these will be created using Perl. The projects in question will require some sorta database management scheme. One of my top requirements is that whatever database I choose, it MUST be lightweight and portable. In other words, the only required action for the end-user is to copy the app and that's it! No previous DB required! I suppose I'm talking about a flat file db (plus). I think MySQL is overkill and I want a DB that does not require compilations of any kind. I'm left with the following choices:
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
