That sounds good :)

As it's a wiki tho', you are more than welcome to correct the info 
yourself and add in the relevant links etc.

You just need to click the register button in the top right and then 
knock yourself out ;)

Both Windows and OSX versions of PA are lagging, but if some 
enterprising soul from your team wants to help make it work and bring it 
up to date, then I'm sure they will be heralded as kings/queens among 
men/women!! ;)


PS I don't normally CC on replied but not sure if you've fully joined 
this list or just wanted to drop by for the announcement ;)
