Wowee, this week's submissions for James's question ranged from simple to complicated, but they all were great! While there really isn't a clear-cut answer, these solutions should give James a good start on tackling his problem. So this week, instead of giving one winning answer, I've decided to include a few submissions as winning answers. I couldn't fit everyone's answers in the space given, so please click the links to read through those members' complete submissions. And as always, don't forget the great honorable mention section. One more thing: A large number of you told us that you love Help.com's free online classes, so we're going to offer more! However, we'd like to get your feedback on the course topics that you find most interesting. So if you could please take this quick, three-question survey to let us know what free online courses we should add to Help.com's schedule, we'd be grateful. Thanks in advance!
