Tim Stowell <TRS@...> of Utah State University has gotten

In a techno-weenie sort of way, this is so kewl! It is nice to see how well
Perl and MySQL worked on various operating systems. Yes, Tim had to tweak
the code; Tim had to change all the relative links (./) to hard links
(./index.plx), but after that everything seem work just fine. I'm amazed.
Now at conferences I can "Yes, it does work on Windows."

The news brought by Eric Morgan spured my interest, since I work in a =
mainly Windows 9x/NT environment.
But, to my regret, after following the URL provided for the Quinney =
Library, I wasn't able to find a technical explanation of the procedure =
taken for the achievement. Aren't they willing to share their knowledge =
with the list?
On a lateral note, about the proposal of Joss Winn <joss@...> =
for a separate list for Open Source Software for Archivists, it is my =
humble opinion that such list would be of interest for the subscribers =
of the present one, so why not broaden a little tiny bit the scope of =
OSS4LIB to include archivists? As far as I am concerned, we may not have =
the same object but we are in the same field. And the cross approach =
would no doubt prove itself productive...
Dan has offered to initially host an OSS4LIB-ARCHIVISTS list should the
interest be there and we need an open forum to discuss things
specifically relating to archivist's concerns. I have also registered
the OSS4ARCH.ORG domain name, optimistic that people would eventually be
interested in using it as a resource for promoting open source systems
and tools for the archivists' community.
Thanks for your patience,
