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
