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 Sites
With Drupal 6" by a bunch of authors. I had expected to post it over a week
ago but the refinement process in OP 15 took my lovely sighted wife Susan
far 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 little
icon like thingies in the margins similar to those that occupy too much
space in the "for dummies" series. I'm sure it can still use some work but
it 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 biology
or chemistry as that would make my brain hurt), semantics, the history of
science, biographies of scientists and mathematicians and other material
that falls into this general category which you can probably divine from the
list.

We are not simply geeks.  Before I joined Henter-Joyce, now FS, I enrolled
in the Harvard College graduate school to study English/Creative writing and
I 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) leads
to long delays and poor work.  Obviously, I do not want to duplicate any
effort 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.

Enjoy,
cdh
