I'm a Brit too, but I'm working in industry in the USA, so much of 
my experience does not mirror the bulk of the discussion here.
Nevertheless, I have found most of the discussions to be extremely
interesting, even if they are not directly relevant to me (and of
course some of them *are* relevant. Some topics are equally relevant
to academia and industry.). I contribute only occasionally, but have
often received positive reinforcement for my comments, and have (I
hope) been of positive help to one or two people here.

Thanks for your contributions (and to everyone else who has contributed
to this thread).
