    Hi, I'm a newly retired software engineer with a MSc in Internet Technologies from the University of Liverpool. I have over 30 years software and database development experience. Lately this has been mostly with JavaScript, HTML, MySQL and CSS to W3C standards. Although I have worked with PHP, this was mostly during my degree course. I have some time on my hands that I can donate. I have experience in design and development, CM, documentation and especially software testing which was my last job before retiring. Regards

    Hi There.

    I am intermediate level programmer. I have developed some small tools here and there, but nothing really major.

    My skills include Intermediate Java, PHP, HTML, JavaScript and Basic CSS, Python, Ruby, Linux Command Line and Git.

    I would very much like to be a part of this project!

    Michael, the project could attract a more enthusiastic following if the front page focused on the content that is most important for the visitors over fundraising (ads).

    In case you absolutely want to have ads, they should at least not take priority over the main content. Here are the main detractors of the site's main purpose:

    • A yellow notification box at the top of the page telling 10 different messages
    • A hosting banner ad right above Recent News
    • Three banner ads for paraphernalia above Recent Comments

      Thanks for your feedback and suggestions, they will be definitely added to the list for our next new theme for the Website.
      We would prefer not to have ads, but we're not getting that many donations, and we still have to cover costs.

    Just curious if anybody had a chance to download and install XOOPS, and in which area would you like to help?
