Well, to be honest, 3 of them disappeared thanks to a cold, I have a big nose so they can get messy!

I was recently asked about bates numbering of documents and am finding this to be a requirements that is moving beyond the expected legal environments...

Bates numbering is a method of indexing multiple legal documents (usually) for easy identification and retrieval. Each page of each document is assigned a unique Bates number that also indicates its relationship to other Bates-numbered documents. Bates numbers appear as headers or footers on the pages of each PDF in the batch.

The Bates identifier is referred to as a number, but it can include an alphanumeric prefix and suffix. The prefix and suffix can make it easier to recognize the central subject matter of the files. When designating documents for Bates numbering, you can add PDFs, PDF Portfolios, and any non-PDF files that can be converted to PDF. The process converts non-PDF file types to PDF, and then adds Bates numbers to the resulting PDF. If you add Bates numbering to a PDF Portfolio, any non-PDF files in the PDF Portfolio are replaced with the converted and numbered PDFs.

By the way, this is what an original Bates stamp machine looked like... just if you were wondering....

Lovely etching!

And finally, yes, I will stick my head above the parapet when United lose, we were thumped by Liverpool 4-1 at the weekend. I thought the game was a little closer than the scoreline suggests but, Liverpool were much the better side. Thank goodness then that Gloucester beat Wasps on Saturday and England managed a demolition job on the French on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.... Phew! Weekend rescued!
