Thank you for referencing such a prime example. I forgot to pass along 
the 'lessons learned' from my experience; that this wasn't going to be 
an easy task to accomplish. It would of required a continual amount of 
dedicated work. The level and daily duration of work was geometrically 
proportional to the volume of postings and their apparent complexity.

I don't want this to squash anyone's hopes, I post this so we go in with 
our eyes open.
