Steve — I’ve put up a new database on my web server and I’d like you
to take a look. It’s a web of people, projects and patterns accessed
through a cgi-bin script. It has a forms based authoring capability
that doesn’t require familiarity with html. I’d be very pleased if
you would get on and at least enter your name in RecentVisitors. I’m
asking you because I think you might also add some interesting
content. I’m going to advertise this a little more widely in a week
or so. The URL is Thanks and best
regards. — Ward
