I received this in my email and sent it onto George Turner
George suggested I put a link in the  forum as others may be interested.
Do you think UCL will be ok with adding the link when it's coming from a different support region of the world
Miriam if you think its ok open it up to the forum please ?
I will not be offended if its not appropriate.
