Thanks Mark!
Appreciate your input, sir.

I hope to have the packaging (installer) worked out and everything
functional over the weekend and then have the first week in August as
a launch target, but there is still plenty left to do. I've maintained
a handful of unused domains over the years, so I'll be switching hats
and building a site/page for it pretty quickly...

...and here is the kicker:
 Although I honestly never intended for it to be (the initial concept
for my project began some 5 years ago), it's a bit competitive to an
offering by another member here on the list, so I want to
apologetically contact them first <hat in hand> and let them know
what's going on. <sigh>

Once all of the above is done, I'll do a small announcement and let
you folks have a look-see.

Best regards,
David C.
