      That's great news! and great progress.
      I've added a gigabyte to your upload limit. (And we have more if you
      need more.)
      The space problems may relate to Linux/Unix in general (I think it
      doesn't like spaces in file names) but I guess it's in the Worknets
      code. I would have to check.

      Some pages to show might be:
      Janet's "Blogging Positively" guide.
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Minciu_sodas_LT/message/6028 (in
      Lithuanian, use encoding Baltic (ISO-8859-13)

      Who else has ideas or requests?
