First of all I have to thank you for all your suggestions and ideas.
Our professor has limited our enthusiasm. He said, if we wanted to
develop something for the XO there should be a group of a maximum
of 5 ppl.
Now these 5 people decided to write a small email activity.
I'm sorry if I disappointed you now, I would have liked to help you
with your ideas, because I see there is so much work to do at so
many nice ideas.
