G'day Caryl,

Thanks.  Looks like a good opportunity.

Apart from answers to your questions, which are more to do with
software and hardware than the project, is there anything you think
the board should be asked to decide?  At the moment I don't think the
board is needing to decide anything, as our members can direct
themselves, but welcome your thoughts.
