Alrighty,

I`ll get to those designs later this week.. and the main headings will 
be neglected on
purpose if thats ok, i.e where it says "community" :)

I feel that an online doc explaining how to present the presentation 
would be a great
idea, it will be hard not to be "bossy" but that can be worked out..

This week is real busy, but I will hope to get some ideas going before 
the end of the week:)

cheers
