We've got you beat here at the APS.  There is snow on the ground right
now!  The Australian and Brazilian synchrotrons are looking awfully
good right now....

SourceForge redesigned their web site.  The screen scraper in
horae_update no longer works.

I am hesitant to just fix the current code -- it was a hand-built
solution and, obviously, much too fragile.  A better solution would
require either using better html parsing tools from CPAN or figuring
out how to gather information from SourceForge without needing to
scrape their web pages.

I am open to any suggestions or offers of coding help.
