I have been working on the dual display work.  I think this is an
excellent opportunity to prove that we can work together successfully.
 I will create a new branch in subversion and from there we can start
submitting code.  I am more on IRC now that I have a stable internet
conneciton in Melbourne.  That also puts me closer to normal working
hours for developers in Taiwan.

You can catch me on IRC as jnettlet usually.  I can also give my skype
information as I know that is sometimes more reliable in Taiwan.

Looking forward to working with you.
