Bit behind Time

This podcast has been very informative for the past 48 episodes. Well done. Following an earlier criticism (sort of) I was glad to see that in recent times he waited to publish until he had up to date figures for the day. Well done also to the members of his young family for staying quiet and not smashing anything.
