	Thanks for the information. I'm happy to try and help in any way that 
I can. I am not an expert cocoa or objc developer but have been playing 
around with objc/cocoa for about 2 years. Let me know (more concretely) 
how I can be of assistance. I will most definitely try and get cocoa# 
from cvs and look for you all on irc. Can you tell me what the best irc 
client is for Mac (or at least what you guys use?).
