I have Guestbook, FFA and simple search all ready to for testing
elsewhere - I'll package and upload them somewhere this evening.
I looked at wwwboard as well and discovered that I had got as far as
making it strict and use CGI.pm so whover is working on that can have
my work in progress if they want :)

I have run tidy over all of it and converted it to HTML 4
Transitional but XHTML would be just as easy. I can download the
rest of the scripts and then fix the associated HTML too.

This should probably done on the CVS server.

Unfortunately because I am without laptop at the moment things are a
bit difficult - I have had to press my very old machine into service.
Oh BTW are we allowing POSIX in ? I had used that in the Guestbook
for strftime ...
I'm obviously challenged at the moment give me a break.
