Thanks for writing this report. I was planning on completing a similar series for my blog but only got through one part (of four planned) before running out of steam. Would you mind if I reposted your report on my blog? Email me or drop me a comment on my blog if that is ok. Thanks for the effort in putting this together. Cheers...
