You know the feeling when you hack on something all weekend when you
should be outside in the sunshine and you can't show anyone except
some random people at a cafe because you still don't have an account
yet? That will teach me to miss the UG meetings.

Anyway, nice little app. As a side note, what other frameworks,
besides Django, have people on the list been able to get working on
Google App Engine?
