I'll be happy to share whatever resources we can.

I had a very short look at your map, but to be honest I did not spend 
much time there.

Thank you, I am glad you like it. But if you see room for improvement, 
please let me know. I know there is still much to do.

I'll extend the description in the Wiki after christmas. But much of my 
setup is still very much experimental, I am still on the learning curve.

Well, if we reach a stage where the map needs regular updating and I 
need my own desktop machine for something else, I think some additional 
power might be very helpful.

Let's see what we can get going together.
