As long as it's not too hard - I've got precious little tinkering time and a "round tuit" list that seems to keep getting longer.

I'm fairly easy. Cheques seems very 20th century, but I guess have the advantage of no setup needs at the expense of a bit of manual processing.

I guess so.

Ah, the old "this might be handy some day" problem :-(
For some of mine I think having some features not working would be OK - but it would depend on what's not working and which room it's to go in.
