      QOTW: "[Q]uoting is a tool, not a rule." -- Bryan Oakley

      "... I was able to DL msys/mingw and builg Tcl, Tk, and TkTable in less
      time that it took do DL the Microsoft PSDK .cab files so I really don't
      need nmake any more." -- Chris Nelson


      POTW: VuMan is apparently the first Aqua Tk application *not* ported from
      another platform, and the second released Tile-exploiting application.

      Is there a(n elegant) way to force Tk to recalculate its geometry?
      Of course there is.

      Should expect_background support a timeout? No, [after] does the
      same job, except better.

      Thanks to Arjen Markus for his report from the Wiki(s):
      Somehow this week's Wiki digest seems to focus on technical stuff,
      with one exception. Okay, let the summary begin!

      Technical stuff
      - An application of Critcl on the Mac: dealing with authorisation
      - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/13401>

      - From Tcl to PDF - it is not such a giant step. Here is another
      initiative - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/13449>

      - Anyone interested in manipulating large amounts of data? Maybe
      NAP is the solution you were looking for - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/4015>

      - Bored with those rectangular windows? You can use your own fanciful
      shapes, you know - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/13409>

      Moving on ...
      - Your Wiki chronicler is no match for people fluent with drawing
      applications. So, he tries to cheat when drawing diagrams ...
      <http://wiki.tcl.tk/13434>

      - Can mathematical logic and set theory be fun? Hm, perhaps not, but
      even in that case, it is easy enough when you know Tcl -
      <http://wiki.tcl.tk/10914>

      - The famous Tcl plugin! Get it: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/12719>

      ... to that expection
      - Yes, Maurice Ulis does it again: <http://wfr.tcl.tk/895> for
      crystalline fun!
