I did try to find some when I first started, but found very little.  I
confess that I haven't tried at all recently.

I'm seriously interested in looking at this but the timing is very
wrong for me.  With workmen in the house and boxes and boxes of things
packed away, I'm not even sure which "safe place" I put the card in.
Doubtless all will unravel back to sanity quite soon, and I'd like to
take up your offer of help at that point.  If we get it working well
I'll try to supply whatever writeup would help you.
