ICL manage this service at the moment "and the following 
comment is a personal opinion and in no way reflects the views of 
ST Helens LEA" do a bloody awful job of it I have already given the 
web address of NINAA to people within the LEA and they are 
looking at it but that does not raise the profile of FreeBSD which is 
what I'm trying to do and a third party giving there opinions and 
experiences of it is worth more than me banging on week in week
