Excellent. Thanks Noirin. If Luciano is not up for leading this time 
around then we'll be very happy to have you. If he is willing then I'd 
suggest you are a co-admin along with myself so that you can learn the 
ropes (not that it's hard work now we have the new fangled webapp).

Whatever happens, I will be a co-admin.
