    Oh okay! As most active (unofficial not confirmed by actual counting) VeryPC competition thread contributor, I'll accept this rather lackadaisical form of entry. You've earned the privilege I reckon.

    You're in.

    What? So where are they then? Has someone intercepted my mail? Mmmm, I bet the sweetie sensor in the office went off as the postman walked through the door! I shall go and investigate - now where's my deerstalker and magnifying glass?

    Everyone who entered BACK TO SCHOOL has been sent a little thank you letter with sweets included. We posted them to your work addresses on Wednesday during the daytime (royal mail 2nd class) so they should start turning up in today's post depending on how good the mail is in your parts.

    Hope they all make it past your sweetie snaffling post room firewalls and confectionery filters!

    Cheers,

    Al.
