Good, so it's at least a cat deterrant! A friend of mine had a nasty incident involving a laptop and a cat... BTW, I'm the author (identifed by IP address again due the usual ThinkWiki autologin flakiness).

I had to tweak the line that reads the position file. My position file has - numbers in it for some reason, so: m/^\(-(\d+),-(\d+)\)$/ or die "Can't parse $pos_file content\n";

After that change it works great. It scared the dogs away here. ;) --nirik 21:24, 12 Nov 2005 (CET)
