Hi Tom!  Welcome to our list!  Pete Salzman had forwarded your message to him
onto this list last night, and we discussed it a little then.
(You can see the thread starting here:

An over-the-telephone attempt may prove to be frustrating, but it's
better than nothing.

Pete had suggested we do a road trip out to Arcata to help you, as we've
done this once in the past for someone in Benicia.  Unfortunately, though,
it looks like you're a 6h15m drive from Davis! :)

The closest other LUG I could think of was North Bay LUG out in Santa Rosa,
but they're still 5h45m away from you.

Doing a little more search on Google, I think I may have found a LUG at
Humboldt State which might be able to help, if the over-the-phone attempt
fails.  From my response to the earlier thread:

    ...it appears there's a LUG in Humboldt,
    which is run by Ian Ray (imr1@humboldt.edu).

    The CS club at Humboldt State USED to have a LUG page on their site:


    ...but don't seem to any more. Maybe someone from there can give pointers?

    Finally, I also stumbled across this fellow:


    ...who specializes in "custom software and database development with
    FileMaker Pro.  Also, Windows (all flavors), Linux, and Networking."
    He's in Arcata.

In the meantime, I'm sure there's a number of people here who'd love
to help over the phone! :)

Again... welcome to the list!  I've got to go run to prepare for tonight's
