Query on the Aphelion Archives?

Dropped by that link and noted that my own name is not there?

And wondering why? Or, did I not 'earn' that spot yet?

:cry:

Oh, Jim.

I chuckle, but not at your expense.

If you look around, you'll see many names that aren't there, including mine, and I'm an editor.

As I understand it, all the research was done by Tao to add all the names, but the actual adding has been... how to say it... waiting in the queue for an extended period of time. When it moves to the top of the list is anybody's guess.

Ahh....

<grin> I see!

not a problem, just wanted to know the "why" of being missing...tho to be honest, just how "big" of a job is this anyways?

in my day job, I'm an MCSD, ie Microsoft certified web developer....and so the additions of names to a list with attached links is like pretty easy, eh? (note the Canadianism too!)

and IMHO, having an updated list shows that Aphelion IS an online site that takes pride in it's contributors too!

</hint>

:D :D :D

Careful Jim, that sounds mighty close to volunteering.

My experience with the 'Zine is that anyone who shows an interest will eventually be [s]hoodwinked[/s]. . .uh. . allowed to take on any project that the PTB can get you to do.

Just ask Robert or Nate. . .

You've been warned.

You've asked the million dollar question, to my thinking. None of the rest of us have a clue how big a job this is.

The only one who can answer it is the person who will do it, eventually.
