Jim, i'm having a hard time finding the email you sent me  recently. I
wanted to let you know that I'm still working on that issue and my
development box is set up. I'm sorry I haven't made more progress on it
sooner, I am a student with some other stuff slowing me down right now.
However I am going to be finishing this before the end of the week for sure
unless for some reason it's like a huge issue which it's not. So please
thank you for staying patient with me and I will reach out if I have any
problems so far everything has been smooth setting up under Ubuntu. Also I
am not going to sit on this is going to get done so thank you for being
supportive. I will try to do my best to stick to that time frame
