For the screensavers last time round I just mainly used my own images
as most of the submissions for the artwork contest don't look so good
when reflected.

I don't have them chosen already, but it wont take long.

I can ask Lewis for a sample today. Last I asked he was wanting to
record a better version of it first.

I'll report in later on both of these things.

That would be good about the council stuff.
