RE: [voting-project] Newcomers: please read existing material first!

Hello Laird,

    The link above goes to the page I had in mind. This is the archive page and the link near the top is some sort of specialty Google statement that David Mertz put in. If I understand it correctly, it uses the Google engine to search only the archives. I'm reasonably confident that David would be happy to write a customized version for the Links should it be needed.

Thanks, Ed Kennedy

  Oh, I forgot to ask -- what's the "special google link"? I can add it to the page, but I don't know what it is.

  Hello David:

  Hello David:

  That's very good. Now all that has to be done is to have that added to the
  links portion in the web page. It would be nice if the special google
  search window also went along with the link. I forget who is actually the
  web master for the OVC page but I think it's one of the board members.

  Thanks, Ed Kennedy
