Re: KillieTalk Digest V3 #34
Hi, again, Lee -
Just fired off an e-mail to Ted offering to help with this task. I'm a
good keyboarded, have a good software system, and a scanner. Can do, if
otehrs can provide me with old JAKA's etc to work from, and guidance as to
what they want. If we're going to include pics I'll need to know what
format/sizes, etc., and Tom will have to help me work on that aspect of it.
Anyway, the willingness and interest are both here -
best - donna
