You're probably right, but sadly the people I want to help are totally broke. In fact, revamping their web presence is part of my effort to save them from looming bankruptcy.
As for me, I never make it to the end of the month without being skint. It sucks. I'm not being paid to try to make this port. Maybe I'd get a thank you dinner out of it.
But given that you raise the point, I have two questions, out of interest:
1) Who would be able to do this?
2) How much would we be looking at to hack together the scripts I need?
I'm still hoping others can share scripts they've used to do the same, or give a few step by step pointers.
Thanks for your reply,
