Thanks David.  I'll pull them down later today and have a good read, if 
it's not too hot to think straight, like the last few days.  (Resulting 
in me sleeping through episode 1 of "Top of the lake".)

I'm planning a sort of overhaul/upgrade to all the shack data 
infrastructure, including new(er) hardware and OS updates etc, so best I 
start to plumb the depths now I think.

Thanks again.


PS:	Yes, I was aware (but had forgotten) of the Scandinavian input to 
NTP, having monitored this list for some time now.
