I think the although this project has shown the power and spirit of Ribnet with so much given by so many: without belittling anyone else's contributions, the most amazing guys are you, & Biffer for not only investing so much time, but having the motivation & drive to see this incredible project through in such a positive way. If only my techie skills would let me post a bunch of dancing bananas for you both.

We pay for them regardless to what they are doing, if they're here in Britain why not use them, they look at it as a training exercise

Yep, they fly round this way with landies dangling under them regularly. I'd be surprised if they didn't come from Cricklade.
