    Spot on - though the recent trainers reaction was amusing, the walking shoes were something else.

    Why Wez? Just why Acer? Though saying that, the specs are pretty good... Was this a PB Job?

    My last one was an Acer and it's been pretty good for me, (it's still pretty good specs for a nearly 4 yr old laptop and is still going strong!) Only issue i've had with it is the power supply cable is getting threadbare and showing the wires! In fact, I think this'll be my 3rd Acer :p

    This was one of the 1 day specials from PB tech yea, reduced from $2300 to $1800. For the specs, i'm not going to complain, it doubles the space on my last one, which i was struggling for! It feels solid and looks good.

    Whoop. Bon Iver baby!

    Not entirely sure why it's a standing ticket with a seat allocation. Can only imagine the floor is all seated :(

    EDIT - Nope, Ticketmaster seem to have given me a seated ticket even though i selected standing. What a ballache.

    Have rebooked for actual Standing tickets and now to try and complain (or find 3 other people who want tickets!)

    Thanks everybody it really is blissful even in the grim weather we have. We can go from home to the marina, which is about 3 miles and be in the middle of nowhere in 10 mins. I just love being so remote. Yet only a few miles from home.

    There is pretty much everything you have in your house onboard. The kids enjoy it they don’t argue, watch tv or even go on their iPads much so it’s really lovely to see given today’s generation

    Depends on who you pre ordered from. If I had ordered from park cameras i would have had it at the beginning of the month. Wex only got 1 camera in with their first delivery so had to wait for their third shipment before it got to my pro-order.

    Probably from Wex because I can use my Amex with them and get Quidco.

    £75k is what it costs to raise a kid to the age of 18 nowadays (excluding childcare)

    So thats over £4k per annum on average.

    Regy wins the thread. That has to be the most idyllic way I can think of spending my days. Sitting on the edge of that at sunset, with a cool beer, a fishing rod and a tub of maggots. Heaven!

    If anyone wants to to know what it's like just put this on full screen - grab a few beers and wind down for 2 hours - All you hear is sounds of birds.

    My brother has lived on narrow boat for the last 15 years - It would be OK but he still hasn't finished it - I have been out on it and it isn't a patch on his old 46 footer - He had engine from a combine harvester - a huge prop and you could put that boat anywhere and it stopped on a tanner.
    He used to win the boat handling year in year out.

    Good luck Regy - I hope you have many happy years from it. :):)
