Well given it's a R5000-180 I'm guessing it's going to be quite old.  Maybe 
I'll be lucky???

Well, the wife has agreed we can drive to Melbourne (400+ miles each way) 
next week and "have a look" provided she can get some shopping done while 
we're there.  I've told the seller I definately want it, I just have to 
convince her now.

She's never seen an O2 in the flesh (plastic?) but I'm hopeful she'll be 
keen when she sees how sweet the O2 case looks.  She likes the colour of 
the Indy but that's about the extent of her interest in it.  My only 
problem will be if she adopts it like she did the libretto.  (see bill, I 
can say these things because she doesn't read this list!).

Hmm... don't 'spose anyone's got a lead on some cheap O2 memory???
