I haven't had much time to add new stuff, lately. :(  Aside from that, I've 
been doubting if I should continue this project... is the site being used 
by anyone at all? Sometimes I doubt that, I do not get many reactions nor 
contributions. (Yes, I did get *some* snippets from some kind people, 
thanks!) Most of the code must be extracted from newsgroup messages, which 
is difficult for me to do these days, since every day over 100 new messages 
are posted.

I would like to know:
* if it's still worthwile to continue this site
* what kind of improvements I could make (a search engine would be cool but 
I don't know much about CGI)

Ideas, anyone?

You call me a masterless man. You are wrong. I am my own master.
