    I'm not too sure about that. What if they planned it this way so they 
didn't have to burden themselves with it any more, I mean, whoever was in 
charge, was in charge for a very long time - I can see that they got bored 
with it, I can see that they didn't want this burden any more, and I can see 
that they may have had problems passing the buck to someone other than that 
young lad who lives in a field all alone with no electricity or broadband 
cables around him. Damn, no cellphone too. Not even paper and pen, toboot. 
Fairplay to him though, at least he tried once.

  If I'm wrong, I'll be the first to hold my hand up. (I hope I am wrong).

      I certainly hope so. And even if yours is the only one, you won't be 
disappointing me.  :o)
