Get yourself over to Studley with a van, and I'll fill it for you :)

Hmm, that's about three times what I paid for mine. Admittedly, it was
filthy inside and the hard disk sounded like a bag of spanners but it's not
as if I don't have a can of foam cleanser and a pile of spare disks knocking

Don't tell me trailing-edge consumer kit is one of the few things that is
actually cheaper in the UK than the US?

I'm always impressed by the braille on a wine bottle labels.
So far I've not been able to drink suffient to find them useful.
I guess everybody needs goals.
