Hi @TideisTurning 

Every time I tried to put in the passcode it dropped back out to the intro page and I had to start the whole application process again.  I tried three times then gave up ….. too tired tonight to push past the obstacle.

Hi @Faith-and-Hope 

 

Other members and I have had similar problems, so you are definitely not alone there. It is time that I should be in bed also, so we will cross hurdles tomorrow or another time.

 

Cheers, @HenryX
