Newbie goes Platinum

Just a note to say thank you to all those who have been helpful over the past 4 weeks, including John!

I am sure there will be many more dumb questions before I graduate from Newbie status. Thank you in advance for your tolerance!

!!!!! Can I encourage everyone to support RIBnet by subscribing. !!!!!!

To the Newbie, this is a valuable, certainly money saving and possibly life saving service which John (and the rest of you) provide. To everyone else, it is clearly a valuable information exchange and social linking mechanism. As RIBnet grows (and this is where I do have something professional to say) it can become a pressure group for change, and a linked association for e.g. discounts in fuel prices???

It is clearly worth a reasonable annual sub, given how much a tank of petrol can cost in even a medium sized RIB!

Please, no one take my Platinum subscription to mean I think I have 'arrived', nor, trade members, that I am suddenly flush with cash (I am emphatically not), nor that I am sucking up to John in the hope of expert status (joke!).

Thanks again,
