RE: EDP's just turned up

Very glad you're now up and running. I'll leave the function questions to
more experienced EDP users, I'm sure you'll get good response from these
All you UK Loopers out there; I have about 80 left in stock before we make
more and I will sell direct, just mail me or call 01621 851851,
