    I am considering doing both of these, mainly as I am bored and need something to do. I'm not expecting either to be overly taxing, but was wondering of those of you who have done it, has it benefitted you in any way? No for those of you who needed it to be agronomists etc, but for you who are...

    Got home to find sinister, thick brown manilla RPA envelope. Opened it to find they had refunded me £30 or something. Cynically, my first thought was "did this cost them more than £30 in time to work out".
