We need to find two or three professional PROOF READERS to proof the final copy of our book before we send it to the printer.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact kittyhawk via PM.

Help Wanted:

The tech team is seeking two Forum members who can commit a little time and expertise to making our Forum run more smoothly.

Job 1: Familiarity with server and database administration/performance tweaking is desired. Problem solving skills and experience with MySQL and PHP are required. Our current host tech support is very helpful but we need an additional person who is knowledgeable enough to be able to ask for specific services from them.

Job 2: Experience with html and web page design are required. We want to improve the look of several web pages and need someone with both skill and patience who can work with us on this project.

If interested, please contact KittyHawk.
