Mutual Banking Round-Up

I'm in the midst of gathering together the last year's worth of research, for a much-needed overhaul of the Libertarian Labyrinth site. I have high hopes that the site can be a really useful resource for libertarians of various stripes who value the lessons of history.

Do you need any help on the site overhaul? I'm no expert web designer, but I have some experience doing pages for web sites and intranets. You might also consider using a content management system such as Joomla or Mambo, if your host gives you PHP and MySQL with your hosting deal. It's a lot easier than constantly re-editing pages for a simple re-formatting or re-organizing.

It would give you a lot of extra options for the site, too. You could easily get other people involved in creating content, without having it posted until you approve it. There are a million bells and whistles you could add as well, if you want to.

Static pages or CMS, I'd be happy to help, if I can. Let me know if I can assist.
