    G'day Mark

    I trust you found the resource useful - many years of work has gone into its development. The authors/contributors have done us all proud.

    I doubt whether I'll be able to make it to the Forum - it's an extremely busy time of the year for me.

    If you make it, have a great time.

    Cheerio, Mark
