Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to Yak fish and you won't hear from him most weekends :-P

Sorry I didn't reply to your PM mate, been on the frantic side of chaos over the last week or so.

Congrats on the cert :y: (the airwaves out there always need a bit of proper protocol to remind the chatterboxes how it should be done ;) )

As a matter of interest as someone registered on the home study course, CG has asked me to participate in some market research looking at how to improve the course plus maybe attend some focus groups...

Not seen it yet but how is it machine dependent? What format is it in? Do you download a programme? If so what about Linux machines (this one is).
