off-hand, I would say he meant a FAQ on the course(s).  i.e.
content, outline, lesson plan, outline etc.  (who to contact

I would think that Tony Lysy might be of help, especially
obtaining the above for the new "Institute" at Olcott.

yes, I'm interested.  The Faq's are just vanilla ascii files
(usually).  I can add them to the archives.  We can add anything
there as needed.

We would really need an "Institute" person on-line to answer
questions.  (or a Dept.  of Ed.  person too, if different)
Perhaps a separate discussion list for course work? The text may
already be on a computer format (somewhere)?? The TSA does not
have a scanner (to my knowledge).  They are pretty cheap though
(<1000K$ for good ones WITH converters to ascii).
