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
