John, at this point it has been almost 3 months since Eric has bothered
to return a phone call ar email from me about said subject. It looks to
me like he isn't going to do them, but since I haven't heard from him, I
don't what the reason is.
I also am contemplating doing them myself, but this time I won't offer
them up until I have a product in my hands instead of relying on someone
