&%$#!~+ CGI

I can't believe it's 2007 and I'm stuck working with a Perl script that's taking 3 hrs to install. Ugh. Stupid thing. Caleb's company uses this web host with an old version of Perl, so I can't run it there, but then when I try and run it on Metro Girl's host it gets weird errors... then I get it to run on an identical account, another account I admin, but that's no good, I want it on Metro Girl. So, 3 hours so far. The good news? It's billable!

EDIT, 7:18 p.m. Got it running, albeit on the clients' hosting. Doesn't matter, it wouldn't run on Caleb's company's hosting before, it still doesn't. Something is up with the server hosting MG. Anyway, good news is, managed to export all the existing lists we had (10 or so) so nothing is lost.
