An interesting time to ask. We will be looking for extended community 
support in the New Year, and aim to have some online training in need of 
beta testing.

We are all away for the Xmas break until January, so expect to hear from 
us as soo as we are back online.

No problem. If you can't figure out the answer it usually means we have 
missed somethign in the documentation and we're always happy to fill in 

Season's greetings to one and all, and best wishes for a happy and
