      Dear Tom,

      Thank you for your insights.

      After looking at the beta site for awhile I still prefer interfacing through AQ.

      I am quite happy to wait for it all to happen.

      I am sure Gaylon and his team will do an excellent job when the time to swap happens.

      Cheers,

      Ken

So busy I need to make all my time count. So I don't always have time to do things that I will subsequently throw away - dead data.
