I like that. I was just thinking about how to keep "0.08" from turning into
0.0800000000000002 today. 8-)

I haven't looked at the code, but that sounds like an unnecessary special case:
why not just an identity function?

jdiworks.net is on a production box. Next month I am getting another server to
balance the load so it will be even less likely to go down.

I can create an ftp user for you.

Subversion should build cleanly anywhere Apache 2.0 builds. ("All modern flavors
of Unix, Win32, BeOS, OS/2, MacOS X.") Binaries are available for RedHat
7.x/8.0, Mandrake, and MSWin. I guess you could use alien to install the RPMs,
or grab the source. (or maybe try apt-get?)
I encourage you to read the book when you are ready to start.
It really is pretty cool.
