Thanks for that.

I have never thought about it before but "electronicskip" has two meanings of course.

1] Electronicskip - a large receptical for the disposal of unwanted electronic rubbish.

2] Electronicskip - to move along lightly, stepping from one foot to the other with a hop or bounce after solving a particularly stubborn or illusive electronic fault.

There will be others no doubt.

Yes, how about:
"to take a nap while thinking about electronics in some fashion (Electronics kip)".

Just an update.

I have been to see a neural specialist today and I am booked to have a biopsy on Friday next.

I will keep you posted.

Thank you David.

At the risk of repeating myself I have to say that the support I am getting from my fellow forum members gives me a tremendous boost in mood.

My immediate friends and family have been wonderful too.
