    Ummm

    1) AMD 1900XP
    2)384MB SDRam-THink its SD anyway
    3)NASTY 56k-Not going to start the Broadband Britain,I hate BT/Cable debate. Man, I live in a posh area and NO broadband. Yes, I hate BT
    4)Geoforce 4.Sony 17"FDTrinitron,Hi Con
    5)Nasty basic soundcard-BIG speakers though
    6)Superb cordless/optical mouse-buy one! Oh and laser printer
    oh and fast writer/DVD
    7) Windows XP of course!
    8)Borland 5 Proff.

    Wait though, have we not done this before?

    Lets debate how crap BT are. Blah Blah 400 people have to show an interest (via WWW) for them to update my local exchange. Hmm so far it stands at 99! Nearly there then!

    And Cable? Telewest are my local operator-Check this-The street 25 yards from me has cable, but we dont. NICE!

    Its all fun and games though. Uni has a T2 connection-whatever that means.Go there instead I guess.



    EDIT-Umm sorry Brian to go off track.KILL BT
    Such is life.
