Hi David,

Thanks for your feedback and your wonderful offer!!  Very exciting. I will
add more info to the Listen page and see if I can make it more accessible.
I'll email you about the other stuff later today if that is ok (it's
Saturday morning and I have a few errands to run).

I'd like to know more about the NCIL (which I had to google to find out
what it is!)
