It was 30% chance, after 5 years, so although it's not there at the moment, I'm not out the woods yet. BUT it's a hell of a start - regularly cameras down the japs-eye, every 3 months at first, increasing to 6 months, increasing to a year. After5 years clear, if all is tickity-boo, then I've beaten the ****er.



Ah , right , well , as you say it's a good place to start from .


There was an old fella from Elgin with me for a couple of days , prostate problems , could have been cancer , they tried inserting a catheter 5 times before succeeding the 6th - he was carrying a plastic container full of pink liquid - his diluted blood from the failed procedures .

Some people probably pay good money for that.

Great news though, really pleased for you and your family!

Take care and all that.

Passed the one that required intelligence, but the visual awareness one I failed. Mainly because I don't have the best mouse in the world, and I was having to click on things in a certain amount of time, and the b*stard thing wouldn't click properly, and the bloody time run out too frequently.

Can try again in 6 months, so not all lost.

That's a shame mate, but at least you passed the intelligence part of it. Give yourself a massive pat on the back for that.

Try and get a copy of the software, bound to be online somewhere
The driver DVLA one, had a 3 second click, IE click once every 3 seconds once a hazard was seen(upto 3 clicks), you could not fail the test, once you got used to it a 95%+ was doable

Tis nowt like the DVLA one - it's difficult to explain, but I doubt there will be another one there. I'm sure if I didnt have an iffy mouse and still a bit of chemo brain, I would have smashed it.

Anyone know of a decent IT guy on this site that can fix DL's mouse?
