   I think that if this would help you then it's a good idea. There
are probably 5-10 folks out here, myself included, that would be
willing and happy to help out.

   As a Wiki user of less than 24 hours (ruccus.org - I was looking
for someplace to post a few Linux made tunes as I don't have a server)
I'm impressed by how much can get done on a Wiki. I would be a bit
concerned about turning your site into a completely open Wiki system
where anyone could put anything there as you have kept up a high
quality level and I wouldn't want to see that deteriorate over time,
but Wiki technology might be cool for those of us that don't do HTML.
(Not that I couldn't learn.)

   If there's a way I can help out a bit let me know.

- Mark
