A lot of fun with clear, easy speaking. Anyone who let's me know all the things that will screw with me ahead of time is okay by me ;-)

I was playing with something similar and this gave me some insights about some of the possibilities I didn't even realize were out there to use.

Excellent and very interesting, it made me think about applications to develop. Thanks for sharing the struggles you had so we can go over them.
