Well, mine is so earth-shatteringly exciting I can't even bear to post a link to it!!


After that I tiptoed around in the 3 word story for a while

1st post:
"The assessment takes approximately 8 - 10 weeks, this will increase if documents are missing at the time of lodgement"

http://www.acs.org.au/index.cfm?acti...faq#processing"

Well, at least I tried to help

One of the first people I talked to was a girl called Leigh, an Aussie, marrying a Brit, we did meet up once, when I came out here to visit before I moved. Often wondered what happened to her, I never heard whether her man got out here or not.

You have to play with the settings - get it to search in Ascending orderso it starts with the oldest, and search by post not thread
