I was expecting the whole registration with EUMETSat to be a slow bureaucratic process that was going to take weeks to sort out. Obviously I was thinking of Britain! A flood of emails from the EUMETSat helpdesk today explaining what is going on with the steps of the  registration process, asking if I want to pay, confirming payment and telling me that the EKU (the security dongle) has been ordered and will be despatched on Monday with the software!
