in thread bivnn.cgi -- an alternate interface to newest nodes

(I swear I responded to this, but that response seems to have gone missing-- maybe I previewed without submit.)

My bad. I was looking at the reputer demo on Konq 2.2.1. Under IE 5.5 (here at work) it looks a lot better. The xNN demo also looks quite nice on IE 5.5, but I suspect it is also going to have problems on Konq (I'll have to check it when I get home). But the fact that the pages change fairly dramatically between clients is exactly why blakem's plain old CGI-generated HTML is so great. It looked the same on both IE5.5 and Konq 2.2.1-- a big win in my book.

The form elements was talking about really do serve a purpose. They just don't do it on the demo page, so my apologies to epoptai for that unfair criticism.
