A good start! Can I join in? If still for sale, can I have 2003 then?

A propos issues arising with wikis, I just read back over the
recent ALUG discussion which I mentioned. There are some thoughts
in there that we may find helpful.

If you want to look at them, go to

scroll down (it's fairly near the top) to thread:

  [ALUG] WiKi Status Enquiry   Keith Watson

and follow it down.

I confess I am no sort of expert whatever on the technicalities
behind wikis, so eom of that material was over my head.

Best wishes to all,
