Hi David

I know you have already received the main body of this message but I,m
at home now so can post to the list directly.

So what if you are on the dole? a domain name costs £5.00 through most
companies or less if you punt around, maybe I can help (my company is an
ISP as well). an add in the paper will cost about £60.00 if you do a
line add so why not start with the web site as I suggested if you can't
do it. Take a look at www.centrosales.co.uk I created this myself so
maybe I could be persuaded to create a site for you? You only need a few

     1. A phone
     2. Exposure
     3. confidence

Most of the suppliers I deal with want you to make two or three credit
card or check payments on your first deals just to prove you will pay,
they will then give you credit, usually around 2K just make sure you pay
on time remember what I said "My word is my bond"

In the words of Norman Tebbitt "Get on yer bike and get a job" what have
you got to lose only your time. If you like, find a punter who wants
some kit, drop me a mail I'll give you a price, add your markup and pass
it off as yours when your on your feet you wont need me any more.

All the Best PeterC
