Yea, I agree, my fears of scripting languages have all started to fade
... they are so much easier and faster to debug. New languages I don't
already use make me a bit nervous tho, but I'll just have to deal with
that  :)

I'll definitely keep that in mind.

I'll definitely check that out then :)

Ah yea, I had still to visit that site ... that solves my gateway
problem entirely.
