    I didn't see the inverted Union flag, I did spy the banner error though (thought it best to keep my trap shut after highlighting a similar error on a rental van I used once and receiving a barbed response!!!)

    I thought the conference was superb, I couldn't have felt more welcomed. I look forward to doing it again in future (and yes Mr Wicher I will be honing my pool prowess so be warned!)

    I see minor apostrophe error on the artwork for the US banner too - but I told Sue not to worry, it is tradition

    I think you may well be too late - I only spotted the error long after it had been sent to print - but it's subtle enough to be our in-joke

    ..and yet there are many many Pedantic Geeks who will HAPPILY check your grammar and spelling, on all printed information.
    Use the resources you have - or may I remind you of the Facebook group referenced in this thread:
    http://www.edugeek.net/forums/behind...anguage-3.html (it is NSFW)

    Glad the conference went well. Looking forward to something a little nearer in the future.
