Thanks.  Piece of cake.

;)

Luckily I have gentoo that manages all these packages nicely.

They have a script that runs ontop of CSPAN and retrieves all the
packages automatically, check's if their in portage etc.  Very simple
really.

I've replaced the TCOP and SHA.  All seems to work fine now.  The
discography page is still a placeholder while I develop the new site,
but ccloopup.pl likes it.

;)

Cheers,
Ryan
