Editing the Twiki is a bit strange the first time but I just inserted a new 
section by copying the heading from the previous sub-section and changing the 
name, then I pasted in the text from my emails and used a few basic formatting 
instructions from here

However, I was also blocked by the Javascript "Error on page" every time I tried 
to do work in Internet Explorer. I switched to Firefox and it worked fine. I 
don't know if this is a Twiki bug or an IE settings problem. Even if you don't 
already have Firefox it's a quick and painless installation to solve this problem.

I'd never touched a Wiki before but the technology is interesting, this  was for 
me an excuse to look into it.
