As I stated a few weeks ago, I have been working on a tool to archive TSR products and manage one's collection. Real work has pressed me more than I had hoped, so hobbies have been left behind a bit, however now a working, though preliminary, version is up and running.

Now I need a few testers. Just a handful, three-four will be enough. The testers' aid will be invaluable in:

* finding bugs/errors/oddities in the system;
* suggesting improvements, minor/major changes, and so on;
* general assistance and opinions ("this thing sucks!" is allowed).

The first one to show his interest was gkramer. Any other people willing to help? Any support will be appreciated.

I am going through a career change and currently attending college full time in pursuit of a Database Management and Design Degree. I just finished up my first VB class and am fully versed in Excel. I would be more than happy to look it over and give any feedback. Since one of my professors and a handefull of fellow students are 1st/2nd AD&D players, I might be able to get them to look at it too.

How much time do you think the testing would require to be useful to you, guerret, and do you have any technical requirements (familiarity with VB, only uses IE, etc., etc.)?

If it isn't LAN/WAN/SAN/whateverAN related, I'm about a typical user, I suppose. But I would be happy to test it for you.

Suggestions are welcome anytime, of course, and I will apply them when I have spare time. I'd say that a week or two would be sufficient, but I don't know if I will be able to undertake further development after this time, since I am about to move to the US; therefore, I believe the testing phase will end when I am ready for further work.

I don't require any technical knowledge, really. Especially NOT about Microsoft. The work is in PHP, so users will only see web pages. My aim is doing a system which is very user-friendly and handles any constraint, complexity and consistency transparently. If cows collected AD&D items, I'd want the system to be understandable by them, too. I also aim at doing a software suitable for all browsers, although I have NEVER tested it with Internet Explorer (I work under Linux).
