See? Another hundred years' experience added in just a handful of posts :o :thumbsup: We're in the home straight in reaching the half-millenium but I reckon there's far more than even that.

Oh, don't worry about me and my bullying tactics, Ian. I can get a bit stroppy when the gin's running low :lol: Glad to hear that you're enjoying the hobby, and experience will build up as it has for everyone. And the amazing thing about the people on here is that they're all more than willing to share their knowledge, which is what this forum's all about. :thumbsup:

I'm just trying to find out how much knowledge...

Only a few guys that efforts amount to hundreds of years, I'm thinking if the same effort was applied elsewhere we could have had several Richard Branson and Rupert murdochs instead ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

in which case...thank gawd for detecting. We are clearly sparing humanity from more of Those. :lol:
