I think it would be great to see it get going a little more too. I kind
of forgot about it since there wasnt much going on anymore. I remember
when I first found the website and mailing list i was excited about using
linux from a christian standpoint. One of the things I've been working on
for some time is content filtering and parental control. I posted on here
late last year and got some ideas but still have area's that need to be
addressed. So hopefully there will be enough interest to get things
I like Todd's idea below also about email introductions, it would be good
to see who's out there and we could also find out what others interests
are, disto's being used and other and levels of expertise to help in
answering questions and solving problems.
thanks for getting it started.
