WOW, I never expected this when submitting, in fact, I almost pulled it at the last minute.

Guess this will be on my front page for quite some time. I must say having the set of ribbons looks good.

Thanks to all the voters :)

I'll leave you a comment now as I wont be around when voting finishes :o(

Congrats Andrew, wherever this ends up am sure you'll be chuffed that your years of overexposing have finally paid off ;o) XxX
