That's great :-) Unfortunately my exams are in January, that means I'll have less time for ZBMethod (and this week I really had none, I'm in an intensive "computer programming training sessions" that will end on saturday. And then I'll have to study for those exams. I'll try to still work a bit on ZB, but I can't promise much.
