    @rags: Glad it was informative and hope it was useful. I will send it to you…btw if anyone else wants me to send them a copy of this podcast while my podcasting service is down please let me know and I will gladly oblige.
    I think what I will do for the question and answer edition is I will record a podcast where I’ll explain why exactly you can’t download the podcasts right now via Itunes.
