I agree that we must also have the non-leica content, or we would loose a 
huge part of the diversity and knowlege base that we enjoy here.

I am also guilty of not posting, but have a whole bunch of stuff that I 
could post.  Now that things are starting to calm down here, I hope to start 
posting again and getting feedback from the LUG Family.
