James,

I'd like to tentatively say "watch this space". I can't say exactly when - 
I'm hoping in a few weeks to a month, I may have something that will help 
reduce the problem you describe. Time is of course the main variable, 
especially since I'm moving to my new house (just bought it) in 2.5 weeks. 
But hopefully very soon.
