      Hi Mark, sorry to hear about the injury but glad to hear you are on the mend. I had a similar problem last summer when I had a bout with some kind of infection that turned into sever bronchitis and was basicaly out of commision for 8 weeks. Oh well, enough of my war stories...here are your edits.

      Edit: something is missing, I think you meant focused beam.

      It, in my opinion is a must. The additional control the user has over where the light is directed is fantastic.

      Comment: I get what you are saying but I think where is the wrong word here as the light will point in the same direction regardless of how it is focused. I think "The additional control the user has over how much of the light is directed is fantastic." would be the better.

      Comment: I think you should add "pack" in front of weight. for all i know you might be loosing weight yourself. All-be-it 5 kg (13 lb) would be one skinny lass.

      That's all I see, fix to your satisfaction and upload. It was a pleasure working with you on this series.
