Ah, well. Guess it's back to using IE 5 for Solaris (which *is* downloading correctly). It's actually pretty good, except that it's an even bigger color pig than Netscape was.
Downloaded the latest Date::Calc module today. I had 4.3, but 5.0 had some functions I really needed. Steffen Beyer should probably get a grant for that module just on principle. It's probably in the top 10 for "most used module" and has likely saved countless headaches and hours of work.
