    Also just e-mailed it to you so you can post it up here. Yes, as you know, I'm notoriously bad about remembering to include the darned translations... :speechless::cheeky:

    No, actually, I got it (and also found on your site) the recommendation translation. It was the record card that was untranslated (and that's no biggie, but part of the full record for an anal retentive historian).
