LOL, think I needed more than 3 days.
Well a few had/have me stumped, just waiting on the jury.
What I will say, is that a year ago I would have had to look up EVERY answer. Now it's about half. :P

Yup, still not 100% first up but hey, not bad. :P
Dragonstek, I have to keep reminding myself of the time differences.
But really, who can keep off this forum and what is sleep?
