That is fabulous!
Do you have a sample text that I could read?
Do you have the slinging article by Manfred Korfmann published in Scientific American magazine? I can send you a copy if you like.

Johnny, yes I know the excellent Korfmann article. I´ll extract a sample text from the book, maybe about Balearics that is a good topic on sling, and also you have already made some drawings about them.  But the problem for me will be the english translation. I´m  enough busy and it will takes to me a lot of time (I´m incredibly slow translating to english and Altavista translations are unintelligibles without a massive correction)  ???. If we could find a bilingual buddy in the forum who like to collaborate, the thing would be easier. Also I have to find the english version of texts from Livy and others authors that I include relative to Balearics.

Hondero,

Have you tried to get your book published by the FEDERACIÓ BALEAR DE TIR DE FONA.

Or maybe you could get money from the Balear Government. I'm sure they have a part of their budget for this cultural activities.

Anyway, it would be great if I could read that book.

Foner.

Foner,
I know from many years ago the kind people from Federacion Balear and had some friends there, like Mateu and Martí, but I have lost the contact at present. Of course they know my book from time ago but as good nationalists I think they would like to make their own History book of Balearic sling, and of course in catalán.
My book was to be published by Comunidad Autonoma de Madrid and they spent enough money in the preparation of the edition, but lastly the project came down due to people changes in the Comunidad.
This winter I´ll publish by my self an improved new version, as the copies of the present one are finished.
I´ll tell you about.

Hondero,

I don't have much time now either, but I can help you with the translation. I hope I learned some English during the year I lived in Michigan Smiley

Foner,
Thanks for your collaboration! I´ll try to summarize in a few pages las andanzas y correrías mediterráneas de los honderos baleares al servicio de Cartago y Roma. Te lo enviaré a tu correo privado.

Salud

I would be interested and dedicated to completing a volume on the sling if people are willing to commit to this endeavor.  I have set up a separate board on the forum specifically for this project.  Interested people should contact me so we can make it formal, with a mailing list.

What is going on with the other board? What is going to be on there? And is slinging.org getting a mailing list?

Don't know if this will help, but I've got some small training in proof-reading, editing, English-as-a-second-language tutoring, that kind of thing.  I'll pitch in if I'm needed.

Post questions in the other thread.  

Yes, everyone can help out.  I want to discuss this further with some of the guys that first proposed this: (Johnny, Hondero, Matthias, Foner, Mithras, Yurek).  I'll propose a more descriptive way we should progress, get some feedback, and we'll go from there.
