I've tinkered with some existing cgi scripts (never written anything from
the ground up, though) and have heard others talk here about Rev-based cgi
enough that I'm getting more curious. I'm sure at some point I'll dive in a
and give it a try! I, too, looked at some available modules, but they were a
little pricey for what I needed. It took a little time to put together my
Rev solution, but it was fun too. I've always like tweaking things to work
the way I want them to. It's great to be able to build your own apps to
serve unique needs.

I've thought about that, but it was easier to make a copy of my Rev app and
run my stack that way. I can then do other development projects in "copy A"
while my stack is running in "copy B" (and easily make changes to it). Once
I feel like it's pretty much how I want it, I'll go the stand-alone route.
So far the 2 Rev solution seems to be working fine.
It would be great to hear about your Miva solution as you progress on it.
