    Hi @bazz18 and a very warm welcome to the community. It is good to have you here, and I hope you find a lot on the site to interest you.
    If you need any help finding your way around, or if you have any questions you would like to ask, or - for that matter - if you just want to rant and rave at somebody to get things of your chest, we're here for you.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
