Sorry mate, I promise I replied as soon as I read your post!! Infact before I even opened the thread and had just seen your username I thought ".......Arsehole".

Hope that makes you feel better.

Bet you got a shit load of karma too.

You also remind me of that 70's ad for cheap aftershave. Denim, for the man who doesn't have to try too hard. Right next to the Brut 33, old spice and Hi-kirate
