I've got to place #3 at the front today! You always find yourself driven to write - it's a compulsion!!! Followed by #1 and #4 - and I know some people who #2 would fit quite nicely!!!

They are all good - I just have a compulsion to sort things! Damn my upbringing - that's what you get with a father who's one of the top engineers in his field! (While my fellow students at primary school had to take their shoes and socks off to count... I was reading Knotts 4 figure tables - and knew my way around a slide rule rather well! And then I found my dad had a copy of 7 figure tables - well... it makes for interesting bed-time reading!!!)
