I'm on this coding kick right now. For some reason I decided to go dig up Stringbean and see how it was doing. It's doing fine! Well, except for the fact it wouldn't start up. So I did some fixing and now it's fine and starts up and everything seems hunky dory. I have no clue what I was working on last.
Anyhow, for anyone interested, here's a tarball of a minimally working version of Stringbean. I release it under the GPL. I might at some point work on it some more, but if not, there it is.
