Lol, good find lenny, now we just have to pain John's car to reflect his status... :P

JohnH, as you say, if your looking to get around and meet people anyway, as you say, its a few quid pocket money if nothing else :) no real value lost if you wanted to head that way anyway, so more profit :P

as for the switch, looks good, very discreet mod!

yes some of the net books have up to 8 hours battery life on them


just be careful on the resolution. You will find that some software will fill more than the screen making it so you can't click stuff at the bottom. but besides that netbooks are great, had mine for around 3 years and still holds its battery. The latest range of 11.6" laptops are very good next step up if you still want something small, lightweight and portable.

sure was stoney, just had to check lol.

i should be getting my device later today or tomorrow. Its being delivered by DHL - they are notorious for going around with invisible delivery men in invisible vans and blow on your door then say your not in!!!

mind you, it could be worse, could of been parcelfarce - where they deliver to the wrong street and house on the other side of the city or royal mail, where it just gets lost...simples lol

but ive ordered myself a new laptop to run a Virtual XP terminal off or use my old laptop for ford software..

Sony Vaio F23P1E/B Core i7, 6GB RAM, 640GB Hard Drive, 16.4 inch Laptop with Blu-Ray

Don't get me started on Royal Mail/Parcelforce.
They mess you around and when you want to complain they give you such a runaround you give up in frustration.
My postman seems to walk around with an empty bag and a handful of "while you were out" cards.
The amount of times I've driven to the depot after leaving the usual 8 hours they write on the card and get the reply "it's not back yet", what they mean is "it's back but we couldn't be arsed to sort it yet".

right a little update, i got a text at 0700 saying the parcel is on the van (with courier) so i thought get in, the depot is only 2 mile away they will be here in no time....well no....

i stay in the house till 1300, which is when i left for work. i left my sister to listen out for DHL. She left an hour later 1400 for work. i get a text at 1620 saying they attempted delivery!!!! wtf....it takes them that long to drive 2 miles, now i know they have other deliveries but surely they would start in and move out to the furthest then boot it back to depot and home.

well it looks like im getting it tomoz...fingers crossed.

but yeah theres not many fords at work, to get started on them :lol:
