    Or you could use notepad or Excel ( if you wanted to stick to Excel ) and only make a note of the persons edugeek handle or name and what number they picked ( first number only ) and ignore any other numbers they posted ?

    Hey, if you're a kinesthetic learner, so be it from us to insist you use technology. Embrace your learning style and be free (just a bit slow :P )

    Ahem, the term, as you can see from the post above, is "progressing at a more graceful pace", and I'll thank you to remember that, Mr Lightspeed, 300,000,000 Supersonic Avenue, Quicksville, Bulletonia.

    I've been compared to Avril Lavigne once by some Year 6 girls...

    Or is there a different Hayley Williams?
