Hi Dr Joe,

btw, do you get to wear a pincushion instead of a common mortarboard? Or
do the Swedes leave such excentricities to English? :-)

Well, the SAE seems to work out of the box without a hitch on R9C-0.

Were going to give SAE a spin on our own applications. I'll keep you
posted, including how easy/hard it is to elink in some of the OTP
libraries like the Megaco stack.

The teabag version is interesting, the next project doesn't appear to
rely on OTP much, if at all. Its not a trivial application, it's for a
SIP protocol load tester. Maybe a good candidate?

Pete.
