  1. Hi,

    Well done – a hugely difficult task I imagine.

    However, for it to claim that it’s comprehensive, I would have expected it to begin with :-

    – aardvark
    – aardwolf
    – abalone etc

    Because it doesn’t, I cannot trust any of it as a reference. Shame though, I need one and there doesn’t seem a comprehensive version
