Having not been around long, with the high pace of developments and forum posts, it's been proving tricky to check for information before I post or even keep up with all that's happening day by day.

It's really nice to find so much progress usefully collated for the week. I'm not... quite managing twenty-four hours per day just yet!

Thank you, Rob.
