This is a far more polite way of putting it than I would.  It's an
earthquake predictor based on pseudoscience and technobabble.

EDG has been trying ineffectually to get this suite of programs to work,
integrating them with gnuplot and a Perl web application, for as long as
I can remember.  I suspect years ago someone told him that Perl was the
One True Language for web applications and the evidence of the
intervening decade has not been enough to convince him otherwise.

Followups set to comp.lang.perl.misc; c.l.python and c.l.fortran have
enough crazy overlap from c.l.p.m without adding me to the mix.
