Nah, more likely a typo or some such.  Keep in mind that a 500 server
error with CGIs *generally*, not always, but generally means there is a
bug in the script---maybe in syntax, maybe in logic.

Just send the $.02 American in certified funds.  Maybe after the
new-agers (and especially their music, god save us from Wyndham Hill,
Kenny G and John Tesh) and the celebrity experts slide into the Pacific,
I'll move to what's left :p  In the meantime, I'll stay a Texian. ;)
