Given that I work shift work, and the site that the digi is on is no 
longer manned permanently, it has proven a challenge to arrange a 
mutually beneficial time for myself and the site people to gain access 
to the Digi.  I appreciate that it has been off line for 3months now, 
but unfortunately work and family commitments will always come first.  
Couple this with the fact that I have been away for the past few weeks 
in WA for work...

Rest assured I will get to it when I can
