    Lee, not your fault but there appears to be a problem logging in to the digital TAS. Password isn't recognized, and when it is changed ("successfully") the new one is then not recognized, ad infinitum

    I am sorry you have having trouble. Which digital TAS? Can you give me some more specifics? Can you take a screen shot so I can share with my technical team?

    Very nice and entertaining. As a swimmer, Mark was a role model. Great to know he also enjoys music via nice gear.

    Eventually fixed by technical team (only a few hours; relatively quick in this day and age)

    He is a very nice gentleman as well. We are discussing some follow-on videos as well.

    I'd love to hear what his personal system consists of. Didn't see that in the chapter titles, and haven't had time for a full-through watch yet.
