Cookies are already implemented in the latest release, which is not
the current live version on ibiblio.

Well I actually have all of the above understood as my immediate tasks
carried over from last year even. I think what I'm asking for at the
moment is more of an interest in why I'm not actually getting anything
done and encouragement to do so. Later on I think I would like more
specfic direction as well as continued progress checkins.

I actually made a little motion toward setting put
dev.permaculture.info on ibiblio. Should resolve correctly in about
24 hours or so.
