I feel guilty now. Sorry Starman [:o] I was just too lazy to flip through my copy. Your efforts are much appreciated.

No worries. I pushed my luck getting that material in as the magazine were close to the printing deadline. A completely revamped specials column isn't exactly what is wanted at such times. However it's important that you are all fed the the most up-to-date information. Most events are very predictable but comets can catch you out.

Keep an eye open for a special in the October issue too...
