So where is best to look if I really want to use something readmade? Being more into webdesign than programming btw

    1. Buy a book. O'Reilly has a ton of good books with many many examples. And that doesn't count the "Learn in XX days" series. This even has the side-benefit of teaching you.
    2. Use a good ISP. (and most other ISPs) will provide you with a number of applications readymade and supported 24x7. Most of these apps you are already paying for with your subscription.
    3. Hire someone. I maintain a list of monks on my homenode who've indicated a willingness to do contract work.

    Then there are Damian modules.... *sigh* ... that's not about being less-lazy -- that's about being on some really good drugs -- you know, there is no spoon. - flyingmoose

    I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested

    It's been mentioned a couple of times before, but London Perl Mongers has their nms project, which provides drop-in replacements for the ever-prevalent Matt's Script Archive scripts. This should be a good start for you.
