That's too bad James. I was hoping we could get some help from you,
however, I fully understand. My time has been really tight too, however
I have been continuing to work on this a bit here and there. Not nearly
as fast as I'd like though.
I have a wiki almost set up on my home site on which I'd like to
collaborate with others on creating the corporate documentation. (some
of which is already in a rough draft) As I've said before I think a
registered Not-For-Profit (then hopefully charity) will get more
attention on The Hill then 'a bunch of guys with a web site'.
Also, I found an interesting open source document database at:
I am trying to install it on my home server for testing purposes. If we
can add to this some way to convert XML<-->ASCII when
submitting/retrieving documents, this might be all we need (with a few
static web pages) to get a basic PG up and running. And running in James
preferred incarnation. Thoughts???
As an aside, as I've been getting more and more annoyed with MS over
recent years, and as I've learned more and more about IP issues, I've
finally taken the big step and moved all my home and work machines over
to Linux. Wouldn't have been nearly so painful if I weren't at the same
time trying to set up all kinds of servers, implement networking, remote
'X' server/clients etc... Oh well, I'm almost at the top of the initial
learning curve now.
