Now that's odd... When I run htdig, it spits out a bunch of "Not found"
messages at the end to the stdout. I wrote a short script that mails users
a broken link report (based on ~username), but I'm sure a Perl expert could
write a more userful, generalized one.

Why hack the code when it's already there? :-)
