Can't remember exactly how the afro thing came about. Something to do with changing smiley sets at some point, I guess.

Twelve hour day today and probably a sixteen hour day tomorrow, beginning at 06:00, but hopefully I'll have a bit more time to post after that, if I can keep my eyes open.

ah!  I thought it might have been something like that....i do like it though, a little quirk of the forum!

wow, i don't envy you that!  I got home from work today and had to sleep for a few hours (just got out of bed Wink) and that was after only 10 (exhausting) hours!!

Good luck keeping your eyes open!!

Thanks - turns out it was only fourteen hours in the end, but I am feeling knackered. I don't usually do such long hours, but work has just become very busy, all of a sudden.

Yep - thirty would be about right, I think.

I'm not all that fussed about the cost of running this comp, but it struck me yesterday, as the British pound nosedived in value against the USD, that I could buy roughly two USD with my pound when I first announced this comp, but now I can only buy one and a half, so my costs have risen by 25% in the past two or three months. As I say, it's not a problem, because I can afford it, but think what these fluctuations mean for manufacturers - both exporters and importers. Plus oil finally came down in price, but at the same time OPEC met to cut production in order to keep the price high, and oil is traded in USD, so I can't see the pump price coming down as much as we had hoped any time soon. All of which adversely affects manufacturing and distribution in the wider economy. Things are certainly volatile at the moment, aren't they?

Yeah, I noticed that the pound had weakened when I received a payment in $ this week and got more than I expected after the conversion.
