Postbox Fairy

An utterly trivial observation

In one of those 'actually looking properly at something for the first time' moments, I've just noticed that the Microsoft Excel logo contains both an X and an L. Up until now, I'd always just thought it was an X with a weird twiddly bit in the bottom right-hand corner.

Request #1: I've coded my interests meme (see previous entry) & it works but is quite slow (2-4 minutes running time for most users). Would any of the more experienced perl programmers on my friends list like to take a look & see if there are any obvious tricks I'm missing (warning in advance to anyone who likes their code elegant - I'm very much a 'bash it til it works' coder)
Edit: Now have several suggestions in hand - now I need to decide which to adopt and mak the changes- it may be a few days before I have time.

Request/Offer #2: I have a spare ticket for a recording of The Now Show this Thursday (got 2, but vectorious is now going to be in Northampton for work that day & not back in time.) Would anyone like to join me? (doors open 7:15pm and it's at the Drill Hall, near Goodge St tube station)
Edit: Looks like vectorious will be able to make it after all
