First: a big thank-you for doing this Jordan. I've snipped your
summary as we've now discussed this pretty thoroughly in a couple of
board meetings and atm it seems hosting WKW is pretty much a no-go ...

Let's do this asap. Jordan I think it would be fine for you to sign
this on behalf of the OKF but I'm also happy to do it.

100% agree here. The rate is very reasonable and he sounds very helpful.
