I'll bring a box down - I assume no net access again... I can set up
databases and stuff, and have the office products all there and
waiting... Id appreciate someone driving my box from my place to the
windmill though, as I really dont wanna try and carry it all that way

On the needed equipment, erm, I have some speakers but they are crappy 4
quid ones - I'll bring them anyway.

Is there a phone line in there, maybe then we could at least dialup to a
local ISP and get net access that way. If so I'll set up my laptop as a
gateway for that. If its an NTL phone line, all the better as I have an
NTLworld account we can use and it wont cost anything to connect.
