  1. thanks for your enthusiasm, Geoff, and for great support!

  2. You're more than welcome, it's easy to get enthusiastic about a creative and fun book that touches on my personal area of interest! It's been widely recognised, and with some enthusiasm, by many of the delegates at various maths and computing conferences going on in the area too :)
