Re: Greetings

This topic has been moved to the Xanadu mailing list, xanadu@xxxxxxxxxxx      
Please reply on that list rather than on the Udanax mailing list.               
Apologies to those who are on both lists and got two copies.

Hee!  I am indeed aware of MojoNation, but thank you for drawing my
attention to ProZ.com.  I recently discovered another very promising
