My CrapDiscoBot!

What do you mean "it is too late?" :)

I've been too busy lately but should be able to compete now :)

There was no way I was going to make the original deadline. Hell, I'm lucky to be writing this now. I'll be back to my old schedule of nothingness in about six weeks though. With the new end date I should be able to get something done.

In other words; Thanks!

new date is 2009-07-15
