    Hi Andrew,

    If you'd like to provide the details requested, and keep correspondence on this page, you can do so by clicking the yellow 'email' button at the top of the page.

    Additionally, I note that this problem was marked as 'fixed' - I'm assuming in error, so I have undone that. Let me know if this is incorrect!
