Re: [T3] New member, hello, and Qs

<x-charset iso-8859-1>Hi Matthew,

I'm not trying to poach you off this group, but there's also a UK group at
www.t3uk.org.uk . We're a "fairly" friendly lot as well! Also have you
joined the Type 3&4 Club? If not, go to Dave Hall's site at
http://www.hallvw.clara.net/index.htm and get joined up!!!!
