- Shane,

I think there are some quirks somewhere in the system. My stats are

shown as 0.8/0.3. Now, this is no big deal, but to my (almost) certain

knowledge I have never filed any phase of any test late. I'm a bit

obsessive/compulsive about that. That first number should therefore be

-1, correct? If you can point out a late report section on record,

I'll go check it out. My guess is that it's a recording glitch.

Ted.

Yeah, well...

This discussion is now moved to BGT Web. Over the next little while I'll

type out all the issues and we can discuss them there.

Thanks!
