Hi, At some point in the next couple of hours, I will upload a book called (I think but I may be leaving out a word or two) "Building Powerful Web SitesWith Drupal 6" by a bunch of authors. I had expected to post it over a weekago but the refinement process in OP 15 took my lovely sighted wife Susanfar longer than we had guessed. The book has a ton of screen shots which we eliminated, tables (which we had to tell OP to recognize as such and littleicon like thingies in the margins similar to those that occupy too muchspace in the "for dummies" series. I'm sure it can still use some work butit can definitely be used with the Drupal software very well now. So, are there any other geeks out here who would like to suggest a next project for us. We enjoy reading (and therefore working on) books about computing technologies, artificial intelligence, linguistics ( but not foreign languages), real science (no bigfoot, UFO or cold fusion theories)other kinds of cutting edge technology (but nothing too difficult in biologyor chemistry as that would make my brain hurt), semantics, the history of science, biographies of scientists and mathematicians and other materialthat falls into this general category which you can probably divine from thelist. We are not simply geeks. Before I joined Henter-Joyce, now FS, I enrolledin the Harvard College graduate school to study English/Creative writing andI really enjoy "serious" fiction and creative non-fiction (Faulkner, Hemmingway, Toni Morrison, Capote, Hunter Thompson, Kurt Vonnegut, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, VS Naipaul, Marianne Wiggins, E. L. Doctorow, Jamaica Kincaid, Margaret Atwood, Gore Vidal, Norman Mailer, Joan Didion, Hemmingway, Steinbeck, Eudora Welty, MFK Fisher etc.).I will probably reject suggestions for books that I've read recently as the refinement process will be a bit boring and boredom (for me at least) leadsto long delays and poor work. Obviously, I do not want to duplicate anyeffort so please check if any suggestion is in the catalogue or in process.We hope to go to the used book store this after lunch so please send in ideas as soon as you can. I'd like to buy a stack of books and get the scanning done and work on the refinements as we proceed forward. If any of you want to learn how to make really cool and accessible web sites, I highly recommend this book about Drupal as it is an excellent content management system (CMS) with 508 approved themes included.
