Thanks Clay. It's good to know that you still find it satisfactory. Time to get out my chemistry set!

(as an aside, speaking of chemistry sets: I had one or two when I was young and found chemistry fascinating. I haven't seen on in the shops for ages. Are they now deemed too dangerous for modern kids?)
