Hi Scott.

Does that mean that you're from round these parts (I'm in Northampton typing this right now)?

I used to have an RM Nimbus at school when I was young and although I don't remember your software I do remember the Doomsday device (massive optical media) being a massive deal.  Remember those?

Cheers...

My brother lives in Raunds so I'm round there quite often.  Nice enough area and not too far from the A45 so you can easily quickly get onto the M1 for a trip to the RCM headquarters.

Cheers...
