Kev, this has to be one of the most fascinating experiments completed online and will go some way toward an understanding of the realities of this hobby. I'm ashamed that I did not get out in all that time, but I was nobbled by circumstances beyond my control. I will help in any way I can with the publishing of these results - as punishment :D

I forgot Kev offered a prize to one lucky participant - well turns out my number came up!!! so if blankreverse can just send that Cunobelin Gold Stater to me.... oh apparently it's going to be a small token of appreciation :(
Seriously well done to Kev and Phil on a most worthwhile undertaking - can't find the original thread so forgotten what kev said he wanted it all for???
