Good luck on Sunday Richard.  OpenStreetMap is a very good thing that is 
being built right now, that will have far reaching impact into the 
future.  And I know you're putting a lot of effort into it.  I'm pretty 
sure that I'll be using your efforts as a consumer (along with everyone 
else) in the not to distant future.

Regards,
Glenn
