Status Update - The database Grows! Thanks to Tims help, I now have over
7,000 entries into the database. That's roughly 7,000 articles, reviews,
tutorials and editorials. Cool, right. Not hardly. My rough estimate is
I'm at best at about 50%. I still need to add the last few years of
Rainbow(US), then Rainbow(AUS), Hot Coco, CCM, ect... Plus I need to go
thru the ten years Tim sent me and add info concerning content.
If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to email this early version for your
comments. I don't want to post it to any archive sites just yet tho,
because its too unfinished.
