Clive - Welcome to CCD!

I am Robert who sometimes does stuff in the background on this site and have written guides about how to use it: see the 'getting started' menu above.
Thanks for giving detail of what you are interested in (it really helps to make the place of acceptance easier).

At one time I knew almost everyone on this site but as the Almighty (Google) brings more people this way, I loose track of who offers what. However, a person who might be of interest to contact is Mo Cohen as he puts on one-man shows and has been helping others.
Another suggestion is to blog about what you offer so that people's attention can be drawn to it.
This site is really up to members to participate and be pro-active about making contact with each other.
Occassionally too, I make a time and place to get people along with the aim of helping them with using this site and, probably more important, meeting face-to-face. When the next date will be isn't currently arranged but you will get a notification by email.

All the best,
