Perhaps we should scrap this old (and by the sounds of things,
out-of-date) database and come up with something that provides
each member with a little "account" so they can maintain their
own details.

Then add some more fields for users level of expertise, areas of
interest, and if they are willing to be a contact point for helping
out new users in their local area, etc.

I like Paul's bsdworld.net idea a lot, but that sounds like a
much bigger longer term project.
