As far as other things go... On one hand no ingenious hacks coming from
Spain in the last 12 months (busy live, I reckon -- but I'd love to see
new hacks e.g. on GPS Map's data, such as reports generated from mission
data... Or Newton Midi-Karaoke! ;=] )...

breaking-edgers, first-adopters and other bullshitters back into the

Only thing we could use: Better PR (paging World Newton Assoc.!). If
