Mark,

I just deleted a verrrry long response to your post.

I feel for you as an independent.  Been there, done that, got the T
shirt.

But I have to admit, I solve problems for a fee.  That's what I do. 
That's how I earn a living.

Each of your value points listed are easily obtainable.  On your own.
You want me to spoon feed you?

Heck, the midrange-l is such a broad based forum about the AS/400
community, you can ask whatever you want and get a whole bunch of
"consult your attorney" responses without creating a new list.

Regards,
James W. Kilgore
