No tips as you're ahead of me, but i am sure it has been a long and frustrating wait, so give it everything you have got as some of us still waiting would eat you alive if they put us in a cage and said winner goes to HMS RALEIGH on the 17Th of July!! ;-)
Best of luck and enjoy the upcoming ride. Let us know how you get on.

Taps the needle and puts a burr on it, goes in easy comes out like a fish hook.
Don't be first, don't be last, and never volunteer!
Turn up drunk and make sure that you have an iron with a European plug on it. For some reason they have different plugs there.
Call the Joss Chief, it's a term of endearment and will make him happy.
Call the Joss "Charge", it means he's extra special.
'coxn' always seems to get a flash from a joss cant figure out why........
Call the Joss round. He'll go sandy bottoms, be nice as pie - Then he'll zob you, and all of your oppos, for a haircut.
