oh i see, you were talking about a big full review - i misread it as you asking if you shouldnt just do a small blog column recommending a good one.
ok let me think about this, there are tons of options, we could do a full big review on the subject - maybe like a review of those full big network information toolsets (ie tool suites that have ping, whois, traceroute, etc). that would actually be very useful, or if you think that there isnt enough subject matter to make a full big review with award, etc., then we could do it as our first mini-guide.
either way, the new two-week process makes it a bit easier to do guest reviews. when tenseiken did his guest review of ftp servers, he and i talked constantly on irc and worked collaboratively editing the review. with the two-week process its a bit easier since you could write the main review and then we would have some days to all chip in and make suggestions, etc.
as with tenseiken's review, i would expect that i would be doing substantial editing of the review to round it out, etc. just to give the review some consistency with our other reviews, but the bulk of the review would be done by you. i can send (or upload for all) the basic review template html files - you can just edit that html file in writing your review. or else send it to me as plain text for me to format. i can also help recompress and format images and make a screenshot gallery if needed.
when would it be due.. depends if we do a coding snacks weekend next week or not..
after monday when this review is done ill post again with more thoughts and files.
