Ah! Much improved, now I know in what orientation I find myself in
respect to your verbal perambulations. I certainly didn't want to end
up playing Hayes to your Telebit in front of the ITU! Neat! Neat!
Neat! but in the end no cigar.

I have to say, my initial reaction was amazement that such a bland
question would inspire questioning my kawasaki-nature. In retrospect I
see my Slothropian dial was attenuated too high - I had thought
detailing the details might be more engrossing for the list (if I
deign to rate the project so interesting as all that!) but would risk
highlighting the target for the doodle bomb in anticipation of the
idea's originator's wishes. Clearly, obfuscation through omission
clearly breeds presumption and one risks ending up with a treatment
from the quisling clinic.

Most surprising was the assumption that I was planning a 40-degree
chamfered turn when in fact a dado is more akin to my planned joint.
I've built things in the past myself, I don't have time to this time,
but I could probably project manage a compentent team with a
compentent lead. And my friend is willing and able to pay, but he
doesn't anticipate needing a permanent development team - the web
aspect is only one small part of this project, not the brazil nut of
the thing. Some business still operates primarily in the world of
margarine and soakers, even in the web 2.0 world. Is that so odd?

Yuck don't read those old things - Perl CGI scripts circa 1995 - too pedestrian.
