I needed flexibility, putting an hour or two a day at unsociable times. With Splash I got the feeling that there was someone watching and encouraging me at the same unsociable time. Personalized help was greatly appreciated. Information needed was always promptly given in a very friendly manner. Never felt silly for asking or like I was being too bothersome.
