This has been an extraordinary week of Q&A on :ftlop:'s Forum and our sincere thanks to Dominic Symington for sharing his knowledge and providing such brilliant insight for all of us to savor. Dom's detailed responses to a wide variety of topics and the time he devoted to answering a record number of our questions is truly appreciated!

Thank you Dominic, this will make for great reading for many years to come!
