Thanks for this support :-)

Good idea.

I agree - see if we can reach that goal. Well, should be doable 
international level. For each country, maybe it's more difficult.

Well, I suppose developers suffer from the same shortcomings that we, 
other human beings have: only 24 hours a day.
But from quite some conversations I know that the people really 
appreciate if testing is picked up early by as much as possible people. 
The earlier the feed back, and the more comprehensive, the easier they 
van fix bugs, so ... the more can be done ;-)

Thanks for your reply Pedro.
Will do some more work next day's to get this running...
