   6 Hi Stuart.
   7 
   8 More than happy to help out.  Attached my version, probably complete
   9 with my own typos and interesting grammatical divergences.  If
  10 anything sounds a bit corny let me know and I'll take the white-out to
  11 it.

  13 A couple of other names for you that might be also interested in giving support:
