Dave has unfortunately had too many personal responsibilities of late to keep up with it.  With any luck, he'll be able to work out a few things and we can get it back on track.

Is there any way to access the older posts? I didn't see an archive link or anything similar.

Not at the moment- I unpublished the module until we managed to get a few things sorted out with it.

I really enjoyed Dave's Point of Tool posts.  Looking forward to seeing it back again soon.  :)

Yes, due to a heavy work load among other things I was not able to deliver the "goods" on time every week, plus I felt like I was trying to hard, meeting a deadline every week on top on your normal job (include family in the equasion) and you just don't always have time. I didn't want POT off the main site because it did show intrest and promise, I hope that with some help it cam continue and thrive, not only from my contributions but from some of our friends on here. Make your voice be heard! hehehe Seriously though, POT was my outlet for thought and stuff because I often have a hard time getting some decent time on here, lately I barely have time for either. I just want it back, kind of miss it  :-[ Can we bring it back Def? Huh? can we?  :pok:  :pok:

It's not dead, it's just on hiatus while Dave and I work to make it more manageable with his schedule.

Maybe you could have others submit point of tools. When Dave is busy you could have a few on standbye and ready to throw in. Hope I am not off point, just trying to help.

That's not a bad idea, but really, it's Dave's baby, so it's up to him to make the arrangements for it.

Point well taken. Hope I did not offend Dave in any way.

It may be my baby but I am up for anyone who has any decent articles that they would like to post, I like to think of MT.org as by the people for the people. If the people love POT as much as it appears I am up to do what is nessisary to keep it running.
