Glad it worked out for you.

It currently works by my making sure to symlink "horae-latest.tar.gz"
to whatever the latest version of the tarball is and by making sure to
extract the HORAE file from the tar ball and place it, too, on the
server.  I am a little worried about my actually remembering to do the
things each time!

Attached is an improvement (even though I said I wasn't going to work
on it -- I get obsessed and can't really help myself ;-)  It uses wget
to fetch a listing of the directory where the tarballs live and
determines the most recent version to download.  That seems easier for

The script is highly dependent on wget.  That could be a problem on
non-linux unix machines.  One obvious improvement would be to allow
using some other program to grab the file.  Another possibility would
be to write a similar script in perl or python so you could build a
web client right into the script.

Let me know if this works for you and I'll post it on the web site.
