Hi Stuart, and welcome to the Arches group! We are now up to 328 members
from around the globe with a shared interest in the Arches project. There's
a good mix here of deep technical expertise and heritage people with
real-world problems that Arches just might help with, so do feel free to
post any questions, or tell us more about your projects as they develop.
You are sure to find a willing listener, and often a helpful answer.
All good wishes
