Dear Stephen (and others who may be interested),

   I've just released v09.0 of "FutureForum Web Discussion Software",
programmed in Perl, with MySQL, DBI:DBD and CGI.pm.

   It's Open Source, and is availabe at:
   "http://futurerealm.com/forum/futureforum.htm"

   The table structure is in the cgi file as a comment. I use a
"branch_no" methodology, with the suffix "-top" to allow reverse sorting
of threaded messages, while still keeping each branch together.

   I welcome any comments!

   P.S.... Monty, perhaps when it's at v1.0, could it be posted in
your contrib list?

Yours,

Peter F. Brown
