If the lighting desk can take input from a computer then we're fine. If
it can't then we need a better lighting desk. ;)

We half half of us standing in the car park charging people a fiver for

a tower block. A certain way to get that new lady into bed, in my
opinion. ;)

What we need is to get it all for free; if it's going to cost us loads
