If you tell me where to get the source, et al., I can do this one.  My
machine at work is a P2-333 with almost 2GB free on the Linux partition,
a nice wide pipe to the Internet, and it runs all the time.  I can start
it when I leave work and send it off when I get in the next day.  I'm
running Indy 6.0-0.8.
