We love to be able to join in this conversation. To date, following the
directions and all relevant information. We have not yet gotten anywhere
near a running system. We ask questions and are given cryptic answers. We
would love to document what it takes to run this software, as to help
others. If any would like to look around our system and see what you see....
Let me know... Would love to get it up and running... hand billing customers
is a pain...... :)
