Thanks Phill,

You know I fully support the mentoring program,
next to that I really like the inter-team cooperation,
it brings a whole jar of other people that could not
or would not help the other teams otherwise.

Their reasons may vary and is all good,
this solves such and that is great. :)

Met vriendelijke groeten,
