     Re: outage note//scheduled outage

if there's one central core of code to read and interpret the data, and
pass it along to the display layer, it shouldn't matter how many
different display layers you want to compile in/with, as if the format
of nocol should ever change there will only be one chunk of code that
needs changing and the rest will still work just fine.  If you want to
base that on perl, C, or basic, doesn't make a difference to me.
