I am, however I would need to get the information some other way besides 
the meetings. It is very difficult for me to make wedsdays meetings. 
That said, I will make an extra effort to show up at the meeting this is 
presented at.
I have worked on a patient tracking system for ER Depts, so I have that 
experience as well as PERL.
