Title: Profile questionaire
Post by tripper on Feb 21st, 2005 at 12:31am
Hi guys... here's a launching point for setting up a profile. My thought is that we could kick the questions around for a few days, and make additions/deletions/modifications where needed. Then those who choose could copy and paste into a post, and fill in their own answers.
