Hi Michele,

Thanks a lot! This is exactly what I was looking for.
However, is there a way I can download the "experimental" directory 
locally to my box?
I can look at the scripts but did not find how to get them except by a 
copy/paste of each individual file.
The must be a better way to do it.
May I kindly ask for one more hint? :-)
