Thanks for the reply. I have been playing with Python etc on the desktop,
but it's useful on the PPC for trying things out while travelling. I can
learn on the bus etc then.!
I will certainly join the mailing list, and it'd be great if we could sort
out the problem there.
I won't be able to for about a week though, but I look forward to sorting it
out then.
Many thanks again!
