Hi Miguel,

As always, I'm sure we're all thankful for your work.  I'm watching your
repeat build thread which I'm assuming is the one you're referring to.

Please don't hesitate to ask me if there is anything at all I can do to
help move things along.  I can do a fair bit with C#, but beyond that, my
skills are limited.

Thanks again, I'll be giving the other suggestions in this thread ago later
(in my copious amount of spare time ;-))
