Well, time has passed- for Alan it has been an action-packed spell of great research and effort - he submitted his  doctoral thesis  and now we are able to send warmest congratulations to Alan Elliott on the successful completion of the viva voce for that thesis.

Congratulations, Dr. Alan Elliott!

Thank you all.

If I can be half as (in)competent as 'Dr Nick' from the Simpson's i'll be happy enough.
