Sorry about that, sometimes I do not press the keys hard enough.Something to do with a tactile problem I suffer from.

I often wondered if the cause of the high occurrence of stroppy ( Aussie speak for easily upset & argumentative) boilermakers was due to the sucking up of too much fume.
I caught up with some of the old workmates a few years back and found out in the process that most of the smokers in our welding workgroup had passed on.

May your chooks turn into Emus and kick ya dunny down.
