the internet's first shareholder proxy voting system

Back in the mid-90s I was tasked with making "", the Internet's first Shareholder Proxy Voting system.

It even got a brief mention on the first page of the Wall Street Journal! (I'll make a scan if I run across the sheet again.) 

It was a bunch of Perl scripts, with a bit of JS flavoring. Had some weird bits like translating into IBM's old punchcard-based encoding EBCDIC as well.

Cleaning up old files I ran into this set of handoff documents (including servers and directories and passwords, oh my - but long since defunct.)
