The reason for this is that an extra field is added to the cache for the 
username - this means that if you choose to use different usernames then 
result for one doesn't influence the results of another one.

To be fair I hadn't seen Steve's post. 

I wrote the code in July and left it running (brave/stupid) when I went 
on holiday at the beginning of August.  Didn't come get home when 
planned (over running building works at home) and was limited to my 
works 3G card - didn't fancy downloading the 12,000 messages over that :-)

Has anyone else braved it yet?
