  1. Hello denis fitt,

    Perhaps you can post those “..so many things i cannot do without difficulty” in a forum. I’m sure if someone is knowledgeable on a subject, they could possibly help you out, thus helping others out maybe. Maybe it will be a subject for an article. Who knows?

    Take care,

  2. very nice articals but many have been applied before perhaps when we get more people interested it will swell i myself would be very happy to oblige but there are so many things i cannot do without difficulty,

  3. Woot, I’m so excited! I’ve been looking forward to this issue! 😀 Thank you Oliver/Mr. Kim.
