	You know, I have been reading these posts, and coming from someone
lucky enough to HAVE a c/c++ programmer as one of the imps, I feel I have
a certian luxury not all people have.
	A different solution to this would be to go through the mailing list
archives, and weed out the posts that are off-topic (as this entire thread
really is) and have the "pure" coding information and straight information
posts available to download. Kind of as a first stop question place. 
	It could be HTML-ized and placed on a server somewhere, so people
had a place to go and look at other people's public solutions to the 
usual problems (ie I want more classes, etc).
	The project would be fairly simple once going, but a real pain
to initiate (mainly coding the original HTML information, and gathering
the same).
	If people are truly interested in this (and I suppose since I 
*did* after all open my mouth the least I could do is volenteer) I 
could set up such a site, and maintain it.
