    Unhappy Some not so good news..... [update] Ned Slider is back!!!! New and Improved!!!!! :D

    As some of you may know, Mrs Slider had to go into hospital some time ago for a heart operation. Well, I'm affraid it's that time again and she's back in this Thursday for another heart operation. Hopefully if all goes well this will be the last one for 5-6 years. So, we are viewing this as a good thing

    Anyway, I am sure all my friends at the Pond will spare a thought for the good Mrs Slider this week and hope that all goes well

    The upshot of this is that I probably won't be around here much after Wednesday for a week or two. I'm stocking up the farm with WU's in advance so hopefully crunching will continue unabated although I won't be able to dump results for a while.

    So the Twitchers may be down a little on their daily total but look out for a dump on my return

    Thanks,

    Ned

    Forget the crunching and take care of your beloved wife, buddy, she needs you much more than we do. Cross fingers for he. I wish her the best and fastest recovery.
