I've heard some wishes for a Chatterbox Archive so, I slightly modified ZZamboni
's PerlMonksChat.pm ( There are plenty of people who probably could do it better, but I didn't see anyone doing it and tried my hand at it )to also write to a file. I'm going to wrap the text in some HTML so it's more presentable and get it to split up the logs by day ( these files will probably be large ), where you could access Archive08242000.html and view the 24th's Chatterbox archive. Anyway, my problem is that I am behind a firewall so I can't run it on any of the servers here. If someone has a server that isn't firewalled, and wouldn't mind running this as a background script and losing a modicum of space then we'd have an archive. I have free webspace on Geocities, but I don't know how to write the CGI to update a file on it ( I'm just now learning CGI ). If anyone can help, just reply here or send me a /msg in the chatterbox.
Everyone has their demons....

Snippets of code should be wrapped in

tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
