      Thanks, Antonio! Don Harris (our interviewee on that show) is the expert, so I’ll try to put you directly in touch with him. That might have to be by phone, ‘cuz Don doesn’t do much of the computer-electronic stuff (except maybe occasionally FaceBook). I’ll e-mail you later this evening or tomorrow (Thurs.4/29), to keep phone numbers (yours and Don’s) private. — Joe J.
