DED's Dice Roller™

I needed a way to have pc's roll dice for when we conduct our gaming sessions via email. Sure there are sites that already exist for people to do this, but I needed the Perl programming practice.

I recently discovered that people are using the dice roller to generate random numbers but aren't emailing the results to anyone. This has resulted in megabytes of error messages due to the undeliverable email. I thought about sticking in code to prevent that, but I thought of an easy way to do an end run around it so I nixed that idea.

I'm going to provide two versions of the dice roller: one with email and one without. If I was actually a good programmer, I'd just have one that you could filter out the email script. But I'm not, so I'm going to do a quick fix for right now and work on a better version later.
