wow *tear-in-eye* thanks for the positive comments guys I'm very flattered to be considered for the position, but I'll remove myself from the running before anyone gets too excited. The main reason for this is that I will be returning to the UK at the end of the year when my visa and fellowship expire. I do not intend to extend it further. My personal opinion is that you should elect someone who is going to be around longer than me, to establish a long running Treasury. I could do it for the next 6 or 7 months, then hand over to someone else, but I feel it would be better for the FF if a permanent candidate can be elected from the outset. With that in mind, I fully support Elizabeth in the Treasury department. malkie edit: oh, I *do* have an official position I'm the graphics guy !! I'll continue to post in this forum after I return to the UK, and I'll also continue to contribute artwork, banners, fliers etc whenever they are needed.
