As I've already written some mails before, the design is nor
significant, nor final, nor useful, I just don't like plain HTML when I
work on something. Sorry for the CSS but it's readable in Opera +
Mozilla under Linux and MSIE5.5 + Netscape 6 under Windows and doesn't
use any "funky stuff". The CSS is also just temporary and "funky stuff"
is yet to come from interface designers! :-)

[skipped some stuff]

I think you stick to much to the "ugly URL" thing. I've used just one
file for the whole "engine" (if you can call it like that so far)
because I can edit one file to change the whole look. This isn't that
important, only a small detail which can change and isn't worth
discussing! Also, you can make /download/ point to
without letting the user see that. Anyway, I cannot do that with my web

Same here. Just one template file and a rudimentary design yearning for
changes. :-)

You are my personal hero, man!

Sorry, couldn't resist. ;-)

Do you know f2s? It is an ISP who also provides free web space to poor
people like me. ;-) I haven't got nor shells, nor CVS nor
something-i-forgot-to-mention, you've got almost root on gimp.org. I
think any comparison is futile... Also, we are wasting time on
discussing stuff like this without coming any further. Maybe your engine
is really "phat" but unfortunately I can't recognize significant changes
compared to the current one.

Anyway, tomorrow I'll possibly get access to MySQL on f2s so you can
test my news code.
