Hi David,

Name is John but I usually go by SonWon online.  :)

Sorry for the late reply.  The hard drive in my laptop died last week 
and I spent the last several days rebuilding the new drive.

I would be glad to join the team.  I am interested in adding some bell 
and whistles to the interface to make the reader easier, although I am 
only guessing since I have not looked at SwordReader for several years.

I noticed there is no CAB file available for download on the main 
website which is a problem for non Windows users.  I avoid Windows 
whenever I can but will run it in a VM to develop for this project.  Can 
we get CAB files listed there?

I think the first thing I need to do is get SVN up, is there a how to?  
I know nothing about SVN but I am vaguely familiar with version control 

Thank you,

I am looking forward to working with everyone.

I choose God and all that my choice entails in this life even unto death and look forward to the new life that will come.
