Let's do it!

Yep.  But I've gotten really bogged down over the last month or so.

I've just made the conscious decision that I'm not going to do
anything but DConsult work before 5pm each day.  I've got to get some
money coming in so I can pay some bills!  I've been doing too much
free stuff lately (like the Gnome packages).

Be prepared for an avalanche of DConsult stuff coming at you.

About a month or two ago, I phoned most of the consultants that
expressed interest in North America and had a two hour chat with each
of them.

Some of them liked the ideas and decided to sign up, and some of them
got scared off.

I've got to do something similar with the people overseas - but I
don't think I can afford a 2 hour chat while paying International
phone rates.

I think I'll try to put some documentation together about what we're
planning, and try to do as much as possible via email.  That's going
to be a much slower process however.

Cheers,

 - Jim
