So, I wonder if we could use Perl's WWW::Mechanize [1] or something
equivalent to automate the updating of pages.  Then, Karyn, we could
write you something which would gather up this info and post it
every 2 hours, or whatever.

Maybe we could have a Java package [2] (as well as any other languages
[3]) that manipulates the website as well-- I personally don't like the
endless CPAN machinations one must go through to get a useful perl.

So this is a fun and challenging project for someone.  Any takers?
