Hi James,

The report said that they have no record of the kind of bug it is- so
to save it then forward it to someone......but I saved it, then the
info disappeared leaving me in the dark. I have another one of these
from 16th January. I thought there might be someone out there who
collects these things- so that I can send it on- you might have
realised that I am completely non-technical. How do I file in
