I could do that...

thanks for the plug. ;) 
I am also working on an update/re-write on the HOWTO right now, so any
comments and requests for clarification would be particularly
welcome. :)

That would be a good one. If we can get about 5-10 people to bring a
machine and show off something it might work well. Since everyone
