I hope Tom will organize this under /join #iris-l so it won't be
off topic. I would like to get 2 day's practice too. I'd be a lot
faster doing things instead of having to rush off and find what
something was and how to do it in the middle of the party. Don't
know if it's going to improve my typing tho'. One of the things
that slowed me down was not being able to use the arrows to go back
and forth correcting errors which I am used to with the editor for
these messages..
