Thanks - these are serious issues... I've got a running copy of Sofa at
so I know it can work. I've got to set aside a few days to test the book's instructions etc,
make sure they still map to reality.

In the meantime you can try running the Pages application (a wiki which uses many of the same
techniques as Sofa, but with a fresher implementation)

The README to Pages is up to date and accurate.
