Back on Track with my Sways Reference CD Project

Sorry folks

now that the CD is out time to take this offline again…


for those that were lucky to get one of my builder’s resource archive CD (I made a 100 for Keith and Bill to pass out)


Just use your computer or another program to look what’s on the CD versus letting the flash program autorun from the CD when you insert it. It’s like an easter egg… It you do I think you find alot of neat articles and materials documents…

for those that didn’t make it to Keith’s or to Bill’s class at the Museum.

you can PM me a request and I’ll consider whether I can afford the postage to send one your way.

A donation to Mike’s cause would be nice.

for the folks that helped we work on it don’t worry a revised copy will be on it’s way to you soon.

those who have any great things you would like me to add please PM me as well and send me what you have developed and I will do what I can to keep improving on the Resource Guide.

Sways Inspired…

as always

For those of you that have one here’s what’s on the CD other than the flash link presentation.
