Dear Brenton:

You have two SourceForge sites. Cross-reference each to the other. So 
that a reader can navigate between them!

>> Whereas on this sourceforge.net page, clicking the "Help" tab--merely

On each page, you have space to write. Clarify navigation between sites.

>> You have lost me. On your sourceforge.net page--I cannot find a menu on

A picture of your menu, goes in your "Project Samples" list.

Software is meant to be used!

I have seen that argument before. "Volunteers are incompetent!".
