Many thanks - I'll try to tackle this before setting of for the UK on Friday. But
Millennium is great and, for me at least, it's a treat to be able to spend time with folk
who are, at the very least, dimly aware of what I'm doing! Mind you the weather is
appalling and very cold.
best wishes

I have in fact submitted another one as Bob has been in touch.
Attaching this if you have time.
Bob wanted something at the beginning and then on possible problems
with LWC. He hadn't realised we were only using this from 1974, because
the earlier data aren't digitised.
Enjoy Millennium!

Hi Phil
Tranquilo - as they say out here in Mallorca, where I'm at the Millennium annual thrash.
I'll sort your new version tonight and write to Bob, if Christian Pfister doesn't grab
me to educate me in Medieval documents etc!!!

Trying to stay calm! It seems as though I send one message and he replies
to previous ones. Does he not look at the authoring centre?
This is a reply to my message of Feb 19. I didn't get his reply sent on Feb 19.
The version I sent you yesterday was resubmitted on Feb 27!

Dear Dr Jones

This was my reply to your first email. Your second message to me this afternoon
suggests to me that you did not get it. It obviously was a significant factor in the
ensuing chaos if that is so - but, as you can see, it left me, so again I am as much
'victim' as you are. Many apologies - but what more could I have done?


Thank you for pointing this out; it does look rather odd. I will check back with the
reviewer and get back to you.
