    Anyone in this group doing the first RPA licenses in SA?

  • @Gary - it is called "life happened". Started a new job (not my own boss anymore) and getting married (*really* not my own boss anymore).

    Unfortunately my Talon is not ready yet - anybody interested in doing it?

    You can PM me.
