     I gave that some thought today, and came to the conclusion that if it's
gonna happen, it won't be me doing it.  I'd want something I could access
from anywhere, so it'd have to be either on or a Wiki (i.e. no
Excel spreadsheets or Office's database program).  A Wiki is a little more
work than I wanna put into it (keep in mind, time spent Wiki'ing is time not
spent writing!), and ease of management is not really "there" for just making
an HTML file for all the characters.

     OTOH, I wanted to do SOMETHING, as long as the payoff to me would be
worth the effort, and is the
result.  A guide to all the Author's Notes, many of which are mini-
sourcebooks of characters.  It's not a lot, but it's a step, and it would
certainly save me the hassle of searching for the issue where I put in the
Sans Rouge every time I want to write them into a scene.  :)

     Dave Van Domelen, might help add entries to a Wiki if someone else
wanted to start one up, though....
