Greetings Mark & all u other VBXML'ers,

PERSONAL INTRODUCTION - BIN IF NOT INTERESTED

boy i'm glad to have this mailing list  - i'm real excited that a specific 
list has been set up for VB & XML. Anyway i'll just introduce myself, then 
i'll go straight to the website 'projects area' and then contribute as much 
as i can to the mailing list.

Hi, i'm Neil Evans-Mudie originally from the Isle Of Man now a resident of 
Sheffield, England (as in Steel and cutlery!!). I work for a software house 
called Fretwel-Downing Data Systems (http://www.fdgroup.co.uk). I'm 
interested in using XML within, what we call, the Further Education market 
To enable data exchange between our back office systems. I'm trying to do 
this with VB, MSXML.DLL, MTS, MSMQ and SQL-Server using shape extensions to 
ADO/SQL.

I come from a Geographical Info. Systems and VB background (I used to teach 
GIS at Uni.). Anyway i'm pretty sporty and a generally jovial character (I 
think).

So there u go - looking forward to participating in the VBXML community.

Neil.
