Re: Should we make a www group?

Hmm, makes me low man on the totem pole, I have not got Linux up and
running, yet.

To confirm my ignorance I don't know what pearl scripts are or do.

I can write HTML, I use Homesite for the editor of my simple website.

Nothing great, I don't care for frames either, CSS is handled by the latest
browsers and I don't know much about it, Java is nice but slows down access
to web pages so I have avoided that and consequently learned just enough to
forget all I did learn. However, I would be glad to help anyway I can.

I may have stuck my neck out too far?
