    I'm sorry, but this is text-only.

    I'm too retro for the constantly-phone-carrying taking-snapshots-of-everything-you-see habit, and in any case it would not be polite to do that upon first meeting somebody and being shown their stuff, as I'm sure you can appreciate. :thumbup:

    If you're all on your best behaviour :lol: perhaps in future I could invite him to join us here on the forums. That would be pretty cool.

    I love it!!! , But will the Skipper actually let you buy anything aside from a KVM? That box of n64's for example? Or the various loot boxes of old pc gear??

    Love the write up.. you could be making a living writing for mills and boon. ;)

    Awesome stuff shredder. There may not have been photos, but in my mind's eye I saw it all. A dream scenario! Hope we get more stories from future visits.

    If you say so, man. :) That was already on my shopping list before I went there, so it was probably the least unexpected part of the experience, for me.

    I think he may have been having a bit of a go about the rather underwhelming outcome of a very enthusiastic thread....

    But I'm sure you'll pick up something cooler next time ;)

    "Huge Pile Of New Possessions or Shut Up". ;)

    Shallow expectations will be met appropriately I guess - one can always Google "List Of Items", if that's what gets one off. :lol:

    I don't already have my own personal horde? Hmm, I guess it can always be more. :lol:

    But I getcha, you'd rather I didn't post things like this. If I'm 'reading between the lines' correctly. Opinion noted, my good man / woman. :thumbup: :)
