OK, the new layout for this site’s just not coming up the way I want it to :p Maybe I should give up on the layout ideas and go back to coding as I should be doing (especially since there is this BOB related problem that a user is waiting on but for which I can’t seem to find a straight answer since he’s running BOB off a CD-ROM) but I am not happy with the current layout either. I know it is nice and it has served me well over the years but the site is now expanding and growing and I feel that the front page should provide easy navigation to all sections of the site. So I guess I’ll work at it a little bit longer but admit defeat if I am still stumped :p

Speaking of the site growing, I have ideas for two new sections :-) One I would like to call “hookup” <g> and is to be a help site along the lines of the GroupHug mailing list – basically a bulletin board where people can ask for any sort of help – not just my application related help. It might be that they have a problem with their Windows (the software – not the glass paned ones <g>) or they might want to change a window (the glass paned one <vbg>) and are looking for somebody to help. If somebody can help, then they can offer to do so. Of course, most of it will be remote access kind of stuff but I’m hoping that it could even lead to people in the same area assisting each other. What do you think? Workable? Too unrealistic? Too idealistic? :p

The idea is along similar lines but for writers – I want to set up a site which can be used by small cells of authors to work on stories. At the moment, I”m thinking of using MT for it and the initial user who wants to set up the cell will have to be registered as an admin for a new blog by me and then they can add new users for their own blog. At least, that’s the way I’m looking at it though I don’t know if MT works exactly that way. If not, I guess I’ll just have to look around for something which works that way. This idea actually came up because Edward and I want to collaborate on a story – and Edward actually has been doing a lot of work on the story whereas I’ve done nothing except say “I’d like to collaborate with you” – but then again, that’s me – all ideas and not enough execution :p
