Sounds like an excellent idea, but I'm afraid I didn't keep a record 
of the number I rang. I suggest trying the number in the phone book 
and asking to speak to the Technical Team, but I suspect you'll only 
get the "we only support ..." spiel (with the unspoken thought "if 
they want to use anything else then they can get stuffed"). Anything 
to keep the pressure up, though.

With best wishes,
