Dear Desperate Mom,

Before giving advice, one needs to know some details.

In your post to David Saum, which was forwarded to the PSN list, You said; "we
are not getting the results we expected"

As an intelligent and by nature, helpful person (but we don't suffer fools
easily), we would like to know:

(1) What did you expect going into the project? Please be specific.

(2) What results are you getting?

(3) What would you like to change?

(4) Is it possible you did not allow enough time to achieve acceptable results?
Sometimes these things take weeks. This is not an appliance you turn on and it
gives you a number. This is a serious albeit amateur endeavor which needs tender
loving care plus a feel for what works and what's crap. If it was a professional
project it'd cost 10 to 100 grand in real money. When it's a serious amateur
project, you pay for results in time and effort rather than cold cash.
