I've already offered to burn you all a copy of BeOS R5 PE and include all of 
the additional tools that you'll need on the CDR. I'll do it for the cost of 
postage.. about £1.

Fair enough, but it still seems to be on the 'back burner'. I'm trying to get 
something concrete done. It would be nice for Carl to reply to the email I sent 
him however, even if it's a 'I'll get back to you'.

I'll take another look at the FPC source this weekend. I don't want to waste 
too much time on it at the moment, because I'm more interested in getting the 
BeCL, stage 1 working.

I work a 40 hour week, have a pregnant wife, and 2 cats to feed. Believe me, I 
have little time myself.
