Thanks Michael, that would be much appreciated. For interests sake: the brain training software market is projected to reach well over $1B by 2015 in the U.S. alone, up from $265M in 2008.

Haha, thx: I absolutely hate Typos; I will be sure to fix it. Zoe-X is doing great - we are currently liaising with angel investors and just about ready to move to market.

NoPicketFence is a great idea and it certainly goes hand in hand with SiliconCape. PS: your website has a nice clean design
