  1. Over the last year or so i've devoloped some faith in the system. Strange i know, but it happened.

    IMHO we're never going to pay to develop one of these. What does the bloody thing do anyway? Nothing that we cant get for 350 quid from fijitsu or elonex.

    Load of expensive nonsense. We're buying it then i suppose :?

  2. There was something in soldier a while back about a british system in the works...
