I could maybe collect the leads next time I'm in Hemel as I often work near
there. Call me on 07799 132798. I'm not sure if I'll make it to October's
meeting though, but should be at November's.

And if anyone (or the LUG meeting setup) needs more ethernet cables,
I just found this eBay seller offering 3-7m Cat5E patch cables for 2.65
each *delivered* (although I haven't used them personally so can't
vouch for their service yet):
