Thanks Joe,

In part related, as a follow on from the first virtual meet up for this working group, the first action point was:-
ACTION (Graham Steel): Look into audio for next meeting (sorted) 

Sorted in the sense that I contacted Alex Coleman who mentioned the potential use of WebEx (web conferencing). 

What Joe is saying I guess goes into a deeper topic related area. I am just saying that it would appear that Alex should be able to sort us out for an audio link up for the the next meeting in September.
