      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.

      For e-mail to occur, *somebody* has to supply a server.

      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 ...

      - Can mathematical logic and set theory be fun? Hm, perhaps not, but
      even in that case, it is easy enough when you know Tcl -

      - 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!

      Everything Tcl-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in these
      The "Welcome to comp.lang.tcl" message by Andreas Kupries

      The Tcl Developer Site is Tcl's "home base".

      Larry Virden maintains a comp.lang.tcl FAQ launcher.

      The Tcl Developer Xchange is a highly organized resource center
      of documents and software with provisions for individuals to
      maintain references to their own software:
      The TDX sponsor, ActiveState, also keeps info to convince your
      boss Tcl is a good thing

      The Tcl'ers Wiki is a huge, dynamic, collaboratively edited repository
      of documentation, examples, tutorials and pontifications on all things
      For the ideal overview of the topics about Tcl most likely to
      interest a newcomer, see "Arts and Crafts ..."

      ActiveState maintains binaries distribution and development tools
      along with a Cookbook of Tcl recipes

      deli.cio.us presents an intriguing approach to reference commentary.
      It already aggregates quite a bit of Tcl intelligence.

      Cameron Laird tracks several Tcl/Tk references of interest

      Cetus Links maintains a Tcl/Tk page with verified links

      "Yahoo! Groups" archives comp.lang.tcl.announce posts
