Hey mbills,

Thanks for posting this. I can't read it fully as with headache and painkillers my dyslexia is bad today. But it does look like it will be an interesting read. :)

Let me know what ya think Gemsi! Still a lot of work to be done of course, but it seems like research is on the right track :)
