Replies are good so me (and others) know.

Please reply to one at a time. It's easy to overcommit, but hard to actually write. Believe me, I know.

I replied to a second one for clarification. If I finish the first before someone takes the second, I'll consider it as they're similar.

I'm actually looking at tackling one of these (an easy one!) but I do have a question on it...

How quick of a turn-around are you looking for?
Couple days, couple weeks, no more than a month?

I think I could bang out the article in question in a day, but making it "pretty" with screen grabs, music, video, sound effects, etc...

Also, what sort of format? Word Doc with embedded images OK, or would you prefer straight-up HTML?

Well this post is my 10,000th point. I guess I have proved I too can waste lots of time answering forums posts instead of doing my actual job. Thanks everyone for letting me hang around all these years.

Don't blame him either. But at least now it by choice.
