This is great, Mike! Out of curiousity, are the DiscussionResponses stored
within the PortalContent object?

Sorry I've been so quiet on here all this time, because I'm really quite
enthusiastic about the PTK. I'm just wearing a couple hats too many at the
moment. Fingers crossed, within the next few days I'll be rolling out some
internal code that I've been working on. Looks like my timing on that will
be perfect, as Topics will be coming along and propertysheet stuff will
start showing up in LoginManager.
