Thanks Bill. You're prob' right. I'll test and amend accordingly.

Hrm, that's the trouble with this still being a "work in progress". I really
want to get this to the stage where it can be published with the rest of the
hints then we can provide proper changelogs at each update. Maybe we put
this out in the open a bit too early but Gerard specifically did request it.
And I think it has been good that we did, as we have received plenty of
useful feedback.

I'm a keen golfer so I can relate to that :)
