This is good information to know; thanks for taking the time to give us the update. To be on the safe side I included my title and introductory sentence regarding the contest, but I would have loved to have had a few more extra words.

By the way, I thought you got a special title in your signature as part of winning the first prize. I see it is still not there... Has Awen informed you as to when that might happen?

It will be the only reward for those taking second place prizes, so I was just curious about that. Thanks again.
