Søren,

Ok, I'm in for sending you some hardware so you can figure this out. 
But, I'll need your advice on getting this hardware to you with us being 
in different countries as well as your address and all that.

Please reply to me privately and take the rest of this conversation 
off-list so we can figure it out.

Thanks!
