Hi All,

As the subject says, I'm available to help out with coding and I'm looking 
for a project to work on. As to my qualifications, I've been a software 
developer and development manager for 30 years (I think 26 of them 
professionally) in applications, database, and systems, and run the gamut 
from government defense work through medical applications and database 
internals. I program in most languages, C and C++ being my primary. 
Strangely enough I haven't bothered much with Python, but it won't take me 
very long to get comfortable with it.

Currently I'm running W2K with MSVC 6. I have both SUSE 7 Pro. and Redhat 
6, but neither of these are currently loaded (I need to get a new drive for 
Linux). I've had no success building tuhopuu with MSVC (I've not tried to 
build bf-Blender), and will need to have someone give me the rundown on how 
to do it (the documentation being non-existant). I've some OpenGL 
experience, but not as much as I'd like. I'm currently developing a 
freeware/shareware telescope app. using OpenGL, but this is as much a 
training exercise as anything else.

I'd be interested in something along the lines of the Ghost project, or the 
internationalization project, but I'm happy to help where ever the help is 
most needed. I have a couple of hours a day that I can commit to 
development (when my kids are in school; this may drop off for the summer
