Thanks! Right, their geek quotient is fairly low, though I must admit
I know my friend through a MUD, so that's pretty geekish. Still..
Unfortunately my vacation is over and they're over in the
US, and I'm here again now. I'll try to keep it going through email, though,
but it'll be harder.

Still, I'll have some other students here shortly. The average 
'geek quotient' here is higher, though. It'll be interesting to compare.
