Ian Philips (ianphil at bnr_ca) here! (said in my best Kermit the frog voice).

I have received a couple of replies obviously intended for Ian McPherson.
Somehow my e-mail address got put in the "From" part of Ian McPherson's
request (something Shaji did?).

Interestingly enough, I *do* live in Ottawa, Ontario, so I can try to answer
Ian's question: I have never seen Dupla products in any stores, and I have
looked. Another interesting thing, Shaji and I both work for the same company, 
BNR aka Bell Northern Research, although we haven't communicated internally. 
We do live quite far apart!
