The above statements may apply to me, I am trying so hard
to keep up and yet still I do not understand all that is
going on. I get to a stage where I get something working and
then it is outdated and I have to play catch up again.

With the recent influx of changes, I feel I am right back at the
beginning when I joined this list a few months ago. I have had
to step back and watch for these last two weeks whilst things
settle down and direction gets found.

I am still wanting to help and do my bit, but again I am lost
as to what to do and where to do it. I do not have a 
particular itch, I have a general itch, to help this project in
some way that the project will find useful. I think I will
continue to watch & learn for a few more days until I 
find my opening again.

Apologies for being quiet in the meantime.
