Yes. I'm aware that I'm holding people up right now due to my 
non-connectedness. I'm actually living in a bed&breakfast with no net 
connection, so I only have web/email access at work.

It's kind of odd - I've been doing some work on it lately, and suddenly 
people pop up who want to work on it after a long period of inactivity. 
Oh well :)

Fixed by me already. Actually, I've done quite a bit of work on it, I'd 
recommend waiting for 2 weeks at which point I'll have net access to my 
laptop again and can hopefully send off my work. At that point I'll be 
disappearing back into university life and doing CW work again so the 
coast will be clear for others to work on it.

I've sorted some of these already, especially in the apps tab.

So ... if you guys can wait for 2 weeks I should (hopefully) have 
something to show soon.
