I looked and I found the very sparse + heavily commented out remains of what it probably was. I was also playing with String::Markov. The code I have left doesn't produce anything close to what I posted. So :P I do enjoy this stuff and I think what you're doing is awesome. I wish I had more time to play with Perl for fun. I did actually do a news reader just wrapping the OS X command line tool say a couple days ago. I might clean that up to post.
