I agree with Chuck R. that the real stumbling block right now is the PRA web site. It would take a lot of work (and $) to make the PRA web site appealing to the general public. Then, programming and maintaining a member-only section and a commercial section (items for sale) will also take a lot of work. They say it costs money to make money and this is certainly true here. The PRA should attack this issue slowly but deliberately. We should lay out some long-term objectives for the web site and then start hammering at it. I believe that a well thought out web site will eventually pay for itself and help generate more revenue for the PRA, but it will not be built overnight and not without considerable commitment from the BOD and membership.
Uh, no! 39 years worth of mags is a little much to drag outside the house. But a half a dozen or so isn't bad.RayPierce said:Dean I know many people have unique situatuons.

I'm not sure I do 'puters but I've been using them since the Commodore 64 and Apple II days and I have built two this year. But actually that isn't too difficult; it is the debugging that is a chore. But then both of my son-in-laws are IT guys so if I have a problem.....RayPierce said:A cd and a computer WOULD give you the capabilty to open at least 6 browser windows to search any cd and plus it gives you the added capability to look for specific words and phrases. The folder options that group topics together are endless limited only by your imagination unless.....you don't do computers.
Thom, since I retired I avoid multitasking as much as possible! I plod thru one thing at a time and sometimes don't even do that much!dragonflyerthom said:Dean I would never figure you as a techie. Does an old man like me good to know there are more of us. It is fun sometimes to run more than one program and multi task when it is possible.
