Buffy (it's a mad world)

seemed pretty pitiful by the time it was set up.

Too many to count.

No idea. But I'd be interested to hear what it was. Hopefully someone
with a fuller archive than me can whip up a quick hack to find out.

My finger in the air guess would be that we run at about 10-15% Perl

It could well be you :-)

USA I expect.

London.pm obvious.
