Isn't technology great! T-Al and Freebird may have just changed the world for the better...............or maybe not.

Hmmm... So, we take an RSS feed from e-r.org, then use that to select and feed threads into a perl script to format the text properly, then with customizable avatars for e-r board members...

We automatically produce a Best of E-R daily video!

My aunt just sent me this cute time waster--I like it because it has sheep!
