Didn't really read Bruce's email didya Chris?!! @Bruce: In my experience most common problems that everyone has are documented somewhere on the internet, and for those problems that aren't common I think it's unlikely you'd get enough people willing to pay a retainer for something that's readily available on demand fairly inexpensively, but I've been wrong before. -Stuart -- http://stut.net/ -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
