Good luck with your new venture Paul, sadly I can't make it to the grand opening (I'm working), but I will definitely come over some time soon
He's not a diamond geezer, or called Joe!
Thanks Diamond Joe, please feel free to come over anytime you can, although looking at your Avatar I think we'll spend more time talking about motorsport more than HiFi though, that's no bad thing I guess

Specialists in the brands that we are passionate about!
Paul, sorry to be pedantic but you have a spelling mistake in your signature ("we a passionate" rather than "we are passionate"), I know it's not the done thing to point them out but it looks odd and frankly, it's driving me nuts, cheers.
No signature worth mentioning...
Hi The_Lhc, don't mention it, I'm extremely gratful for you pointing it out, I'm so used to corrective text on forums now I'm getting lazy, I take it WHF's forum hasn't got this feature, better be careful with my spelling from now on
Oh yes, there is a corrective feature Paul . . . its called 'The_Lhc function' . . . Spelling police again . . . oh boy

I'm not going to get into an argument about this but for the record I haven't corrected anything like this for a long time because I understand with some people it's not a question of laziness. The only reason I pointed it out now is because, for a business, it looks rather unprofessional and not the best way to advertise your services, otherwise I wouldn't have mentioned it. I also wouldn't have mentioned it if it was in the body of his message but it isn't, it's in the signature, so it gets appended to every message, which makes it more noticable.
Also, Paul has actually said "thank you" and appears to appreciate me pointing it out, so he clearly doesn't feel he needs anyone to defend him (although I notice he hasn't actually corrected it yet!).
But just to reiterate the point, I only pointed it out because it reflects on Paul's business (albeit minutely), if it was purely personal comment I wouldn't have bothered.
I think you are right The_Lhc, it was a helpful note . . . and I also agree, the forum has been better for the unmolested jottings of simple folk in their style . . .
Doh, after all that I totally forgot to correct the error
I remembered when in bed last night, corrected now though, thanks again for pointing it out The Lhc, I for one am glad you did
No problem at all.
Now, about that website of yours... (just kidding!)
