I do believe that it would need to be signed, etc. I can't remember
exactly what the lawyer(s) told me, but they said that I could just make

I can't remember if he signed it and it was witnessed or not. I suppose
it's time to update it again to protect my two new (old) DEC acquisitions.

P.S. Ok, Brits and others, what's IANAS ?
