ME! ME! ME! Yes please!

I've found the other boxes for the Linksys kit BTW. I'll bring them along.

I'm hoping to get a list of bits and pieces for give-away or swaps as I 
get myself more organised - there's only so many sad scrunching sounds I 
can cope with as I stomp around looking for things and finding them 
under my feet. The 3Com switch is fantastic BTW. It's hanging upside 
down inside the boiler cupboard now (it doesn't seem to mind), and has 
been there since the day after you dropped it off and hasn't missed a 
beat. It does mean I have a 24 port Netvin hub now surplus to 
requirements. And sadly, a very dead Sony Vaio PCG  160 with a 20GB hard 
drive and screen that might be breakable up for spares. Although I don't 
think I could bear to watch.
