Seeing as I've spent our budget of £32 on that book for rancid, gut
wrenching, hateful Zen Cart I was hoping for free.

I like Dave's suggestion but I'll have a play with yours today and then
with your suggestion after ;-)

P.S. Andy: Seeing as you're a 'Band Man' have you seen that Portland?
Are they any good? I think the girl in the band fancies me, she keeps
tweeting me. :-)

Mind you its not surprising I'm the best looking with Wolves-Lug :-P
