Thanks guys for the confidence. It's a bit quiet now on the doc front. 
My regular business is suddenly taking over.

Let me introduce myself for those that don't already know me. I live in 
Maastricht, the Netherlands and I work at the University Maastricht, 
department of Medical Informatics. After about 10 years of being a 
network administrator I got the opportunity to become the software 
engineer on a PhD project in 2000. After a year the original researcher 
quit and I took over. I'm still working on it since I needed to build my 
own "tool" and for that I needed to learn Java, Corba, various 
healthcare standards and, finally Cocoon. For those interested: the 
'tool' is a standards-based electronic health record system with a 
Cocoon frontend and a Corba connection to the data servers.
Now the system needs a serious overhaul since the standards have 
developed in an unforseen way and I need to build in authorisation in a 
way that is probably not done before.

Somewhere in the distant past, before starting Computer Sciences, I 
studied and graduated at the School for Translators here in Maastricht 
in English and French (psst, don't tell).
Apart from my fulltime job I have a husband and two boys of 6 and 8.

Bye, Helma
