Please keep the list Cc'd on useful discussions! Adding Cc back in
assumption you dropped it by mistake.

Also please follow a well-established tradition to use the ``>''
symbol for quotations instead of indenting text.

The flat cable with a small flexible shield glued on top of it is the

with photos) are appreciated.
