Well, no you say it... ;-)

Ok, I've paused my research for a few weeks, i'll continue during holidays... In a couple of days. I've managed to make my backend work, I mean, actually print something by calling the real backend (Faking its name).

Now, I need to practice a little Perl-Mysql (Not too hard), and much harder, I need to design my database structure... Something i'm not very good at, knowing that wrong design will slow either printing a job, or dynamically generating a report web page...

My aim is not to make a full billing system (Users don't pay for printings where I work, they only pay when being stupid ;-p), but just to know how much somenone prints, and maybe managing quotas to prevent printing when it's over.

So, in the few next weeks, you may have mail ;-)
