Don't know about that, but Ernest Hemingway wrote a short story in 6 words :-

Re: RS Final Confirmations?

Out of luck myself.

The next question that springs to mind is what is the latest that anyone who was lucky reckons they registered?  Alternatively, what is the earliest registration time for the have-nots?

I'll start off with unlucky at 06:18.

Hi

There's no angst - it was just a thought that struck me at work today.  Looks like nobody else is too worried, so I'll stop too.

It seems to have wandered off now, but that's the way of threads.  Thanks for your thoughts & reassurance.
