I just wanted to make sure you were aware of the exisiting
application, in case it made more sense to develop on top of it
instead of re-inventing the wheel.  I'm not a programmer though, so
perhaps it didn't have a very solid foundation.  I'm anxious to see
your application develop!  I'd love to have something like this.
