    • I'm wearing my Grandad's Villard today - which I have really fallen in love with.  I was going to be pottering about outside today and thought maybe I shouldn't wear it, then thought about how many hundreds of hours it probably already spent outside, tending his beautiful roses (I didn't inherit that particular skill), so figured it would be just fine - it's probably how it got most of its scratches.  I'm going to invest in a custom strap for it at some time (and get it serviced), to fit the lugs better and be a bit shorter, so that I don't get the pointy tail showing from the front.  Now I know that I'll wear it regularly.  Might even have a go at making my own, I'm an experienced sewer and have some leather pieces. And whilst yesterday I said I had some standards - in respect of the correct date - they're not high enough to endure the blister I would gain trying to move this forward 18 days!  I need some Rodico on that crown too - I didn't get it as clean as I thought that I did.
    • You got it.  Always room for one more.
    • Certainly not my type, but if you like it why not? Wear and enjoy.   It’s an interesting name. A sort of cross between Nemo and Nemesis.
    • He was updating a server last I heard, I will see if I can find the Email.   Here you go.   Watch Repair Lessons <keepingyouinformed@watchrepairlessons.com> To:??????????????   Mon, 26 Apr at 12:04     Hi ???????????????????? I hope you are well. I am just writing to let you know that the website update has been complete and the site is back online.  All went mostly to plan, however there is a small problem affecting a portion of users. The issue is not reporting correctly the enrolment of the course to the front end. All data is intact, including progress and assessment data, however - something is lost in translation. I have fixed this manually for the few who have reported it and I have gone through many accounts manually and seen the problem is not affecting everybody. At the moment I can't see a pattern but it's a very easy fix, so if you login and click on your enrolled courses and it shows you ar enot enrolled - fire me off a message and I will sort it for you. In the meantime I am trying to track down the root cause of the issue and will attempt to patch the problem. So in short, if you see a problem with your course access then please message me and I will fix it as quickly as possible for you.  Yours kindly. Mark Lovick
