Several Forums - One CDgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread
Well, I don't know how much interest there is in this since Chuck made a copy of the CS forum and put it on a CD for folks, but here goes anyway. What I have ready to go for $5.00 is a single CD with the information compiled from the following forums on LUSENET:
Country Style Homestead
The Barter Board
Cooking and Crafts
And Dairy Goats
For those interested, I can also include "A Country Singletree" and Freedom! self reliance forums at no extra charge. Just let me know when you write to me or email me. I will be keeping an updated backup (to the best of my ability and the LUSENET's stability) of the forums mentioned and make them available as they're done (probably once a quarter). The CD I'm letting you know about now is somewhat like the one Chuck did in that it doesn't have the search engine on it (working on that version, but it's a LENGTHY process to do it right!). You have to wade through the threads to find what you want, but I'll send simple instructions on how to get started and the rest is just like looking at the forum online. The major difference is, of course, all the forums listed being available on one CD. So having said all that, those interested can email me for my snail mail address. Thanks!

Thanks Phil, I am interested but I am wondering how hard it is to work it??? I am terrible at this computer stuff!

Just emailed you, Melissa, but so everyone else will know I'll post it here, too.
The setup I have on this CD is pretty simple to operate, and I'll send detailed instructions and you can email me with any questions or problems you have. Once you get the index open, it's just like surfing the forums online - same look and feel. The only glitch I've encountered at all is with Netscape - doesn't want to work on Netscape's older version for some reason. If you have Internet Explorer, though, you won't know the difference in being online. Feel free to email me with any questions you have - I'll answer as quick as I can!
