"Is anybody familiar enough with Perl and Curses on Windows to help me out?"

Not really, is TinyCurses similar enough to be of any use?
Also maybe you could write up a short Perl page and a Curses review from your experiences? PaulBlay
TinyCurses doesn't have Perl bindings obviously, but I am looking into it for a long-term switch, since it does have that neat layering system. I'll write a review when I get time; I'd like to solve the problem, preferably. Da-Breegster

If you're hosting off your own machine and want a hand with downloads, I can offer two alternatives: I'll happily provide (for free) somewhere for you to host your downloads, or alternatively you can use CoralCDN as a free content delivery network - leave me a message for the former, or for the latter, you just need to add .nyud.net to the domain part of the URL (e.g. Your Linux download becomes http://jigstar.ath.cx.1024.nyud.net/files/mnemonicrl-src.tgz - The :1024 just needs to become .1024 instead). This should ease some of the pressure on your personal line. Please note, I'm not affiliated to CoralCDN! Also, a tgz in a gz is overkill as the tgz is already gzipped.

So far the load hasn't been bad at all, I may take you up on the offer when I get a stable, widespread release ready. Thanks for the link to CoralCDN too, neat place. And the tgz isn't really embedded. Both windows and linux people download clients one-time containing the README and updater script (the windows client is larger since it contains cygwin). The updater fetches the latest code (tgz) and keeps the tarball around since there's no reason not to. Da-Breegster
