This gives me an opportunity to ask a question then. I've determined that I
would like to track all information that is worth keeping. For example,
I've added the Dissolved Oxygen and Nutrition threads to my "Library" on my
website. This is something else I would really like to add.
What is appropriate to use? Should I just ask each person individually what
they would like done with their information? Like for right now, because I
hadn't had time since yesterday, I just added "Todd posted:" and "Geoff
reponded" and "Bruce responded:" as far as names go with the intention of
asking this this evening (busy day :).
Well here... http://www.farmertodd.com/library Under "Write Upos that may
be of Interest". You can see what I've done. What are opinions of this?
Might also be something worth mirroring on the NANFA website. It only takes
me a couple minutes to get these into this format. Some of this page isn't
complete yet, but you can see where I'm going with it :)
B.G. is it okay if I add this post there?
I realized a few weeks ago that there's a ton of great info getting posted
and, well, the archive doesn't work anymore. I spend a lot of time typing
responses, might be easier to just do it once and then not think about it
again, that is, unless I change my opinion :)
