    Thanks dx. I've only just got started with cryptic crosswords. They're great fun but my success has been very limited thus far.

    Keep at 'em! It takes a while to get "tuned in" to the clue-setter.

    Took me ages to get into Crosaire in the Irish Times but now it's a real treat...although I wonder what they'll do when they run out of puzzles now that the great man has passed on...
