They usually work as expected.

Not even that, I'm afraid. I grabbed the form mailer a while ago, because I needed one fast and I thought I could just patch the major security holes. As it turns out, I have nearly completely rewritten it, because it wasn't even SMTP compliant, and many newish servers won't accept non-compliant SMTP clients. (My server won't)

Worse though, I had some web designer hand me a script that required CGI-LIB. I hadn't even heard of cgi-lib until I looked it up. It had it's time, but it's time to bury it and move on.

I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.

    Assuming you think its worth it (PHBs usually mean it isn't ;) ). Then it may be worth deciding whether they broke the copyright on the search script. After all, if the job was to make the site searchable and they didn't change it then they charged 15K to install a CGI script. Nice work if you can get it!
