      As for the Chatterbox, I don't think Use Perl is updated often enough for people to be hitting it enough to maintain chatter. I think the reason why it works on E2 is because people are busy working their way between nodes and can follow vaguely what's going on in the Chatterbox. I hit Use Perl once a day, so that wouldn't work for me.
