    Thanks Monsoon!
    Both for all the work you put in and posting the results.

    I found it really interesting to see the charges, even though I haven't even got my own business. Just handy to know for when I consider starting up.

    I would, but you'll have to give me a few customers first, so I got something to charge. :D
