BTW I continue to be amazed with how impressed I am with Tigertech's support -- see http://justcomm.org/#tigertech BTW justcomm.org is an alias domain for a subdomain of cohousing.org So in different senses justcomm.org is a part of cohousing.org but in other senses Justcomm is the umbrella around Cohousing-L , l.cohousing.org and now wiki.cohousing.org . And of course www.cohousing.org is hosted elsewhere. Kind of a tangled web has evolved tho really quite logical in it's twisted way. I have yet to compare your measage to Tiger Tech instructions closely so this is just a brief reply to clarify this one point. Tho the TT instructions were as of WM 1.7.1 a closer read indicates to me that the expect them to apply to ver 1.9 . I have yet to decide whether I'll try to install myself; I'm at least think I may. I'd like to feel more confidant about installing software so this sort of looks like a chace for an easy success. Tho If you can be available if complications develop that would be great. More later. As it happens this is kind of a busy weekend so I dont know when I'll get back to this stuff.
