Many people have helped in many ways. I have attempted to list them, roughly in time order of their assistance, below. The risk of identifying and acknowledging individuals is that I will miss some who've contributed greatly. If I have done so please accept my most humble apologies and let me know ... you will be up on this list as soon as I can manage.

I remain indebted to each and every one of you, and many others beside. Thank you.
