Last night I took a shot at modifying the Rule Maker 
Ranker spreadsheet to help us identify and track 
potential Gorilla Games.  I'd be happy to send a copy 
via e-mail to anyone who would be willing to QA my 
work and provide feedback on fixes and improvements.

Below this message is a blank version of the ranker 
and below that is a sample version filled in with some 
data about the Supply Chain Management Marketplace 
Exchange companies (CMRC, ARBA, ORCL).

In the meantime, maybe we can impose on TMFFUZ to take 
this endeavor under his wing and help us get the 
finalized sheet posted onto this board so all can 
share in the future.
