I am really happy at this, in fact I have been grinning inanely all day, now however there is only one shadow on the horizon, that of funding to get to the conferences, Yes the fact that my session has been accepted removes the entrance cost of the conference, but it does nothing to remove the associated travel and accommodation costs.  and these are quite large for a UK based independent consultant,

So if some kind vendor wishes to sponsor this little old Brit all donations gratefully accepted.
