Ah seriously as Alpha Bravo already said, LMA's are used all the time down here and have been since they were introduced in the last round of upskilling.

Welcome to the site Elisa and an interesting first post. We normally ask that new members put up a quick post in the introduction section just so that we all know who we are talking to. Nothing that will reveal where you work or anything personal, just a basic idea.
