Couldn't get to this last night as my NTL cable modem was going loopy.
Has anyone else suffered from 'busy period(tm)' when having no
connectivity is a 'minor issue' (according to the NTL tech support who
refused to refund my call).

As a result, I'm not tracking the stats from my modem, perl scripts
here if anyone else is curious if the problem is media related or
simply NTL running out of transit:




1GB Proc Cache!?! I wonder if I can hold them to this!! Doesn't suggest
how much RAM it has, knowing my luck if I buy it there will be none, or
1GB, but if it has 1GB RAM I bet there's 0 processor cache.

Looks better than what I forked out for a while back and am getting
seriously depressed about because I can't do proper KVM.

(Does it really have 6 USB sound devices? I know back in around 2000 I
craved a creative labs USB 256bit external sound device, basically as
my laptop had a rubbish AC97 crackling sound output).

I won't hassle Tescos over this, that's not the sort of attention I
want to let them anticipate from further free OS product lines.
