Hi Ray,

As I'm now getting pretty close to purchasing a security system (The
Wife is urging me to get on with it - I'm just waiting for payday!!),
I was wondering if you had anything further to report about your
Comfort system?...

I think I'm pretty much set on this system anyway, - I haven't seen
anything else that looks nearly as good (and it's English!), and your
first couple of reports have all been quite positive, so unless
you've suddenly run into any "showstoppers" I reckon I'll be
one at the end of the month...


Paul Gordon.
