I guess I'd better see that too!

Whoops! My computer says that there is no such page! Maybe misspelled?

Aha! An elementary mistake on my part: I've just been cutting and pasting the address from the post, and the dot is missing from after the "www"! Oops!

There, that worked! So they use softwood cuttings! I'll have to try that.

Thank you, Nariz!
