Hi Patrice and Orion,

I've registered for access at the ESL web site and (in "...in one or
two business days...") might be able to confirm that the source matches
upstream.  I say "might" because I refused to give them any of my phone
numbers and instead supplied them with a 555-... number.

Assuming they accept the application, I'll be happy to give the package
a cursory review.

Would that help?
