I'm paying for it because I now have the tension waiting for the drives to appear (they won't) or the email cancelling the order (it will).

I work for an IT Reseller, showed it to the boss the other day and he ordered 500.  Not holding out much hope.

How much is a 250GB drive these days?

Can I get one that powers down with the PC. The one i've got at work stays running, which is fine for work , but not so hot on the bedroom pc!

If he gets his and I don't get mine I'll not be happy :(

If you get a mobile one they can run off USB power so when the pc is off so is the drive. Although I don't know whether you can get bigger than 120gb...

DVD and DivX player at Argos for 30 squid. A mate just got one.

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5335275.htm

Just bought one, 27.99. Ace at that price.

My box says it's a 2054, which doesn't show online, there's a 2055 though.

They still had 6 left... :P

There are some quite amazingly hi-tech fibres in a modern football shirt.

Hey, not exactly sure where to put this, but does anyone know why I keep getting this error on my internet connection? I never use to get it and now it keeps coming up to random websites. None in particular, sometimes they work and sometimes they dont.

Server Error
The following error occurred:

Code: (SERVER_RESPONSE_RESET) [Select]
The server response could not be read because of an error. Contact your system administrator.


Ive tried everything, deleting cookies, my cache, reinstalling firefox, even reinstalling windows, phoned my isp and they dont even know how to fix it, spoke to advanced tech support and they didnt know what to do. Tried google search and also nothing.

any help would be appreciated. Im on dial up home pc.

*potential* deals at Amazon.

They're doing a customer vote thing, you vote for an item, if it wins the vote you get the chance to be offered one of the items at a seriously knocked down price.

Today's vote is a nintento wii, ps3, or a garish looking xbox 360, all at 75% off retail price, the vote lasts til midnight and then tomorrow they're offering 250 units of the winning item to people who voted for that item.

They're doing a couple of these over the next few days, worth a go, isn't it? Even I'd have a nintendo wii for 44 ;)
