Re: [nbos] [FM] FM8 Techniques Sharing"Jamming" Mon Jul 30th, 2007
Could a forum be set up like in Yahoo Groups? Where there is a mailing,
which you can specify for individual or digest delivery. There is attached
files that could be stored in the file section. There is also a poll
section that can be very useful for development of needed features. Just
throwing out a middle of the road idea.
