How long does it take to read what's been going on ... then make a post in response if need be?
Thirty seconds ... a minute at most.
How long to construct a lengthy missive?
... maybe half an hour.
So, 10,000 by one minute. What's that, 167 hours? Four or five weeks work? Let's call it six weeks, and be done with it. Or even ten, if you like. OK ... where do I send the bill?
Geoff doesn't have "spare" time as such. All his time is his own, and a hour here or there is much the same as any other. I could (should) add that Geoff's "working day" is pretty much 24x7 as well (just ask those corresponded with whilst most folk who get on here are at kip). But there again, he isn't being funded out of the Public Purse, either.
