Are you kidding?  We're thrilled!  Please look at the list above, and if
you see anything in that list you don't know how to do -- it may be just
one or two things, it may be many -- ask here and I and others will do
our best to get you all the answers you need.  That way Google will
capture the answers and the rest of the list can learn (and, hopefully,
help in the future).  You'll find it's not as hard as you think, just
takes some time to learn the process.

Thanks for rolling up your sleeves Murray!
