Possibly did it cross your mind I could be hard of hearing or have other reasons not to try THE PHONE???
I mearly asked as believed someone on ere was related to Paragon!
Appologies if I have caused offence - it didn't cross my mind that you may be hard of hearing, but it did cross my mind that you didn't want to talk to them for some reason. I assume if you are hard of hearing that you'll have come across services like type2talk which although presumably a bit of a pain to use can be no less troublesome than hoping someone on the internet might happen to have the information you are looking for.
Unfortunately it seems that in the last 5 years everyone has become very reliant on the internet/email as a communication method and we seem to have fogotten that we can just call up and speak to a human being - in so doing we'll stand a good chance of getting a fast/direct answer. Of course email has a whole range of advantages not just for those who can't use the phone but also for those who would prefer not to! The downside is that even organisations that do publish email addresses often don't have good records for responding to enquiries (especially from unknown contacts).
