Scran, what are the rules for this sort of thing?
:eek: :D :eek: :D :D :D

7th Apr 2002, 23:09
Well SFly, I'd normally go by time of post, but you managed to both get that exactly the same as well!!!

Afraid that if his post "appears" before yours, technically he gets in first.

However, seeing the time is tied, I'm in a good mood (and Pigboat had an advantage being a Canadian!) I'll give both of you points.

(Please make your cheque payable to Scran's Musical Extravagana's Pty Ltd!!:D )

(PS - This is assuming, of course, you have the answers correct!):p
