Worked a little better today, managing to get the web proxy server mostly finished this afternoon; I just need to add some code to generate the statistics for the report, and then I can move on to the testing phase. I still didn't do as much as I wanted though, so there's room for improvement.
MSCL update: AnotherUniverse hasn't paid BMG one dollar for the box sets. Which means they've been sitting on over $300,000 for about nine months now. As you can imagine, people are even less happy than they were when the box set was listed on Amazon. AU is apparently going to meet BMG tomorrow to sort out the financial details, but I don't think we're ever going to see the box set materialize from them.
