Thank you Jonathan..
After ATLASIII I had hoped that we might have had enough interest and
capacity to establish a research group, but it never eventuated. I guess
because there wasn't anyone to drive them towards a particular purpose as
there is now.
So what is it that you are particularly after so that we can gather some
ideas from other like-minded individuals, about what is out there that
could be useful to us, if that's what we need to do.
