      QOTW: "Also, I have stopped calling my TCL programs 'scripts'. I have
      noticed that many people (managment types and even some engineers) think
      of scripts as being trivial programs." -- Bud Beacham

      "[T]ypes are almost always just values stuck in a rut." -- Donal Fellows

      POTW: "Jim is a small footprint implementation of the Tcl programming
      language", by the author, among other delights, of hping.

      Relative newcomer Googie provides TclMixer, a low-latency
      SDL-based alternative to Snack.

      Thanks to Arjen Markus for his report from the Wiki(s):
      With Europe firmly in the grip of "King Winter", the Wiki remains
      the warm place we love so much! Here is the summary.

      A lot of applications ...

      check out <http://wiki.tcl.tk/8751>

      - Managing copy-n-paste under Linux: use this clipboard -

      - Put on your 3D goggles: here is a visualisation tool for
      3D data - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/7146>

      - From data model to diagram to SQL code - save yourself
      the trouble of typing that code - <http://wiki.tcl.tk/11998>

      - Tile is being used in more applications than you might
      think. Have a look: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/13636>

      A lot of games
      - First of all there is this collection ... <http://wiki.tcl.tk/13404>

      - Then there is this number puzzle ... <http://wiki.tcl.tk/13272>

      A few other things
      - The discussion goes on ... How do we market Tcl?

      - The confusion about "closures" - I do not know if this will
      help, but it sure has some info ... <http://wiki.tcl.tk/3330>

      - Parallel ports, serial ports, I see the discussions on the newsgroup
      and I never know the one from the other. But: <http://wiki.tcl.tk/2816>
      for anyone who does!

      - I cannot resist including this little gem: 3D bar charts ...

      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.
