(excuse top posting, am using my phone to write this)

Thanks for the explanation... I did everything in Charles Kerr's name, and then 
realised my mistake and went off to update names here and there.

I think part of my confusion is that Petr has left Charles name on the change 
logs, so it suggested Charles was pitching in again.

I posted that message before I noticed that Petr was also doing the website - I 
am bad with names on a good day ;-)
