gee, thanks for the permission and approval. i feel so much more affirmed now. 

i will keep my enthusiasm ( sorry - 'excitement') to myself - after all, what 
does publicity accomplish? links on a website - piffle, they never work.

and as for approval - actually, we try to coordiate publicity in CAI - so we 
dont get lots of halfcocked stories that result in long term difficulties. 
bit daft i know;)

do have a nice day,
