Hey Ken, I'll check it out over the weekend and chip in where I can.

Most of the development time so far went into getting the interface
completely configurable via a couple *.conf scripts in
/usr/local/share/PCDM/ and also getting the authentication/login process
working well. Don't worry about the initial appearance when you run it, I
just threw a bunch of random images into it to test out all the
configuration stuff. Once it gets to a much more "finished" state we will
swap out the current graphics for some nice looking images, and also set
some good defaults for the setup.

a later version of the program.

comes to mind. I am just finishing up the new version of EasyPBI at the
moment, and there is another PBI-related program that is quickly rising in
importance so I might not be able to return to PCDM in the very near
future. If you have any additional questions/comments, please let me know!
