No use strict
Only requires 5.000 but makes use of 'our' keyword, which requires, err,
Doesn't localise variables in subs
Appallingly long string of elsifs
Doesn't use localtime when he should
does $foo = $array[4]; without commenting what @array might contain
In case of error, returns an error string consisting of the helpful message
