Cool, I'm glad its being hosted somewhere stable ;)

Hmmm...I'm still having an issue installing the script...I need to sort
it out.

Part of the project, now that its prototyped in python, I think is to

Bryce, you had some thoughts on this. Can you elaborate?

Greg, awesome...give me a call before end of biz day on FRI, PST
