That earlier email of mine be a classic example of what tiredness
does to my mind. My sprint to get AFIO v1.3 released has turned into
a long distance run, lots of staying up till 3am and then getting up
early day after day week after week ... anyway I somehow had it in my
head that I had seen your code and knew you could program whilst
somehow not attaching your name with the Damian Vicino whose code I
only reviewed last week. I am sorry about the confusion there. Yes
you need no competency exam.

Very wise. Well done on snagging Robert as your mentor. Myself and
Robert disagree about most things, but hopefully he won't disagree
with my belief that Robert will be an excellent mentor and you
couldn't have done much better. Congratulations Damian.
