Hello all,
    I've just faxed a trainer's agreement for the tutorial. After much 
as persuasion, we've decided to go ahead and do the tutorial.

There is a lot of work to do in the meantime, but we should be able to 
produce a
tutorial that will be of value.

No doubt we'll be using Mark and the Harmony peeps as guinea pigs :-)
