"I would walk five hundred miles, and I would walk five hundred more" so surely a thousand?  Disgraceful!

And to me, a bread roll is a crispy bread cake/bap/cob or whatever, and a bap is a soft version! A pair of baps is a handful!

Re: Girls

I'm glad there are women involved, their meticulous nature and different thought processes can bring a lot to the table and it is good to see them getting involved.

Plus, they smell and look great!

Re: General "I can't wait until release day" thread!

The "eBay" equation reared it's head in another thread.  I will categorically state right here and now that I certainly won't buy a Pi off some scalper on eBay.  My money goes to the foundation and that is it.  If I have to wait for batch 3 even, so be it.

Re: Tax

The way i see it, the Foundation is bringing the boards to UK and then you buy them from the Foundation here in UK so it shouldn't be an issue.
