Dear Mr Boulanger,

Thank you very much for your input.

I do NOT need a polished system within 2 weeks. I need a proof of concept . 

The production system shoudl run in 2 or 3 months ... and could be optimized 
afterwards also, in order to be polished. If it is well though already this 
should be possible.

What could you do or take in charge ?

Best regards,

Nicolas Pettiaux
