Thanks Andreas :) 

I'm curious about the 'first publically available mod_perl server' tidbit.
It that documented anywhere? I think that is a really cool bit of info
that should be remembered.

Also, if you have no objections, I'll go ahead and note that 26 October is
the 'official' birthdate for both CPAN and PAUSE since they go hand in
