Absolutely no idea why I'm still playing this. But thanks, Rodan, for not keeping that unfairly gained time.

I'll take that $4, which is just under £2 at the moment. As a sign of honesty in this agreement which I hope we will enter into, I shall not claim the points which I gain from your last post time. Mainly because they're about 3, I expect.

Why put off till today what you could just as easily get done tomorrow?

I can mathematically prove that 1 equals 0!.
