 My apologies again for spamming you again with this announcement.

The correct URL for signup on this course is:
https://www.123signup.com/event?id=zjdvr
If you get an application error when clicking on this link then please
just cut and paste the link exactly as written.

Sorry again for all this confusion. In future I will try to remember to
always put URLs on a separate line (thanks to David Bourne for this
tip). I have made sure this is done in the text below.
