Thanks a ton Paul for the information. I am using CGI and my host
( does not have django hosting - and being mainly
a C/dekstop apps programmer I really don't want to learn the whole MVC
concept and its implementation (and quirks) in django - I want to use
abstractions only when I feel the need for them

Since a django user made pyfacebook, hopefully someone on the forum
will help out

Thanks again
