Thanks Pat - I didn't realise it was saving the URLs, dead handy.

Done.

Done.

Done.

Won't do this yet but on the cards for later.

To do.

Did a round of optimisation on these a while back - will look at them again.

Thank you! Great suggestions, have implemented all the easy picking and the rest are on my todo list - cheers!

I've re-run the test with the changes above made - here's the link:
