It certainly was enough to make my brain register it as unreadable, I
only went back to it when Warner mentioned the deadline again.
Looking at it now I agree it is rather minimal as far as html goes, but
it's still not something I'd willingly read as email (had to spawn a
browser to look at it).

I had a look at the code, but unfortunately I'm not much of a perl
coder. I'm sure there others on this list who can do a better job than
I can.

The system was fairly easy to use, the hardest part was deciding how the
various entries ranked :)
