Hi Rob,

Thanks for sending us the vid & link to GNU MediaGoblin project - I know we
are meant to be working with them and have not quite got there yet, which
more to with us being limited in capacity, and much happening at the same

Also, I notice they are still using Identi.ca - which I presume means they
have it based on their own server. I'm wondering what you think regarding
identi.ca when it is so full of spam & bots?

wishing you well.
