    Hi filbert!

    Your email form isn't working, so I posted here. You might want to delete this post after reading it

    I don't know if you've been reading my posts for the last few days, but I've recently been putting together a site for my book on HTML (Advanced Web Content ). One of the things I was planning on adding to it was a forum like this one.

    I've noticed that you have a pretty significant readership already, and was curious if you'd be interested in sharing your forum database with me for use in my site?

    Essentially, I would duplicate the php that you use and point the page submissions to your database server, giving us duplicate data. I would also place a link on my site specifying that I'm using your forums. It would be nice for both of us, because you would get additional users, and I would get a nice forum for little development effort.

    What do you think?

    Steve

    Sorry about that, forgot that I renamed it to /contact.php .

    Sorry but for extremely important security reasons I won't share the database. Also for bandwidth reasons because for once I might actually start to threaten my 12 GB/month transfer limit.

    I completely understand. Guess I'm going to have to start from scratch

    When your book gets published though I'll be glad to add an entire forum category for it.

    Sounds cool !

    I plan on doing much more than just a book, though. I'm making the book a complete web site that allows users to learn HTML interactively, with interactive tutorials, etc.

    It's gonna be pretty cool (and free)

    Just something I always wished existed.

    If it gets published, let's talk. Sounds like a good opportunity for both of us.

    BTW, I fixed the mailform, and yes, referring to the big red text, you have permission to contact me

    Great, thanks.

    My AIM name is catsplatter.

    IM me if you see me online. I'd be interested in talking about co-operative marketing. I plan on having a launchable site within a month or two. It's kind of difficult to get things done while operating two businesses and pursuing other equitable ventures all while attempting to maintain a social life!

    You're offline. I'll probably be online tomorrow.
