It's been over a month since I last posted about my efforts in this
quarter.  I've been a lot busier than I anticipated but slowly but surely
I'm finishing up and i dare hope I'll even be finished by the weekend.  As
there are one or two other people working on similiar documents maybe we

just an idea, I don't want to dissuade you from doing what you want.
