what a joke...

for the record I did browse through the CVS web on
your project page, and saw some of the ssi's. I see
you're familiar with the <font> tag :)

I find it funny how you claim the backend to this
painfully simplistic web site is so complicated and
that only a "genius" like yourself has the know-how to
implement such a killer app.

Give me a break man, <font> and "SSI" was cool in the
early to mid 90's. Get over yourself, and read a bit
about mobile and section 508 accessible web sites.

I'm sure you think I'm out to "take over" whatever it
is you think you have there, but really, I'm offering
a pretty valuable site redesign, even if I do suck at
graphic design. Only thing I would like is a link back
to my homepage in the footer. There you have it.
