Me too :!: :D

I received my e-mail yesterday. They said I had a shortfall of 60 credits and I received a compensation of 120 credits valid for 6 months.

I thought it was a hoax at first, but I entered the voucher code on SP and received my credits. What a nice bunch they are [cheers]

Hi Cathy

I used to work with a 'Bunty' and in her case it was short for Elizabeth. Not sure if this would apply every time though.
