Nice going :-)

That reminds me, a little update. I'm making progress on getting hold of
the ND100 machine. There's a little pressure on getting the docs soon as
they're in someone's way, but the machine itself is safe and sound where
it is at present. Actually, it's on a tiny island in the middle of a
river... getting it off the island is going to be interesting. I've not
done a water rescue before :-)

Hmm, sounds like I should remember that! :)

Well I can throw you some ND100 images to go with that if you want when
we get the machine onto slightly more solid ground!
