I am sorry I keep coming in and out of the discussion. I was working on 
a project full time the past few months and didn't have time to offer. I 
am able to help with the help files and other writing as needed. I am an 
experienced technical writer and would like to work on one of the bigger 
projects needed. I will touch base early next week to get started.
