    Yeah, I know, but handicrafts is not really the term I would use

    Just poking my head above the parapit to say I wasn't trying to belittle anyone achievements (seriously BEng - very well done!), more just giving a much loved subject a little ribbing It was actually one of my favourite lessons at school (though it is true, at the time most of us did refer to it as "a doss" ).

    Yeah, I know, and my point still is that a) it isn't anymore and b) the way the course is run now, anyone less than academic would have a problem getting through it which may mean that those suited to this sort of work get disheartened and give it up
