Ta  muchly  for  the  encouragement.  I am always  relucent  to  make  the
redundant  (post, that is). By the way, I have just been to your Web site,
which  is pretty nice. In case I need a computer soon, I might as well buy
one  from you < http://the-computer-shop.co.uk/newcomputers.html >.  These
big  branches are too difficult to communicate with if anything goes awry.
You  give  good value (specs) for the money and MS Windows  entails  extra
charges, as it _should_ be.

Best wishes,
