Hi Dan,

Welcome to the list!
Where in this great wide world are you based, by the way? We've got 
members all over the place!

No doubt some of the more technical list members will be able to assist 
you, and we'd love to hear about how your projects progress over time

Once again, a warm welcome, and we look forward to hearing more about 
you and your CoCo adventures!

Kind regards,

David Roper
