I have only joined the list in the past couple of days and frankly, I am just
getting used to the amazing capabilities
being plugged into the Net offers. I am sure that as things progress, we will
be making major contributions to this
lists, but give us a break for now.
As to you, Marc, I'm based in Quebec City and am very happy to see that there
are other people form up North
that participate in this forum.
