Sure - but I followed the theory that if you are thinking it, chances are someone else is too. Additionally, just counting the number of monks after me with more XP (7) wouldn't give me a good idea by itself, it takes knowing how many monks total came after me (8,523) to give it perspective. Besides, it is just for fun anyway.

Update: After reading woolfy's update, I feel I need to comment further. There was 0 load added to PerlMonks by this program as the code actually queries an external server. The effort I put in will likely be hard for some people to understand since I have already abandoned the project. I absolutely despise database programming and hate CGI/HTML/HTTP/etc coding even more. I force myself to do "fun" projects with them to improve my skills so when/if the time comes that I need to - I am not starting from scratch. In other words, this seemed like a fun project to torture myself with.
