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.
