Please remember I'm in the UK, I may not be ignoring you - I might just be asleep!  
Also this isn't my day job so sometimes I might get distracted - feel free to prod me with a reminder!

And for those of you that like statistics - 74th Expert to reach 5 Million points (08/28/2011) - 2nd highest ranking expert ever not to have a Genius Certificate (That prize goes to PeteLong! :)) In March 2013 I made 6m points and was ranked ... 74th!  It's tough swimming upstream!  7m reached in April 2015

November 2022 - 11M Points and soon to be ranked 57th overall - I'm clearly in no rush!
