Good news indeed, Dave :thumbsup:
I bet it was the request for a car park season ticket that prompted them to do that ::)
After all, they said Lydia would remain in the hospital until your grandson arrived, and then you asked for a parking subsidy :D

Our car valeter at work found a bag of fine grade cinder style ballast in the back of a car we bought yesterday, so that was a nice turn up for me :)

We're never that lucky. We've found a camo paint stick, some ballast and a fibre optic transceiver, but that's the most exciting we've had :(

Its called an SFP i will take your 1 and raise you 16 lol

They convert quite correctly data to Laser Light at 370mw, the light is a red colour (although you shouldn't look into them as it's quite dangerous..) One side is the Transmit and the other the receiver.. Thats what I do for a living for my sins  :-X

Sorry for all the questions but if you don't ask, you Google!
