Brian, am I being particularly thick ? when I logged into the Lug (my 
account) there was a text at the top of the page saying
something similar to "you have been bounced 2.0 out of a maximum of 5.0" 
shortly afterwards I received a message that my subscription
was terminated due to excessive bouncing. It may be my lack of 
experience in things IT or something to do with my age, but somehow
I just can't get my head around this one. Probably too full with 
stochastic and deterministic seismic reservoir analysis, self-organizing
matrices and neural networks.
Thanks again, humbly :-)
