Hi folks,
I am posting this email thread just to avoid duplication of effort (you can
the suggestions I provided to Brendan).  You can read his question at the
bottom of this thread and answer him directly.

Many thanks as always,

Hi Ken,

Wow, that was fast!  It looks like there's a lot of stuff to work
with.  I've seen some of it, but much of it not.

It would be fantastic if you would post my question on the listserve.
I'll be sure to let you know what I find out and what I end up using.
Thanks so much.
