Nearly £700 of Ikea office furniture and a desk for my treatment room. Well, bought on Friday actually, but just finished building it. Very nice but dodgy shoulders now completely shot to pieces.

Weren't you just changing away from the Blackberry the other day to a cheaper wildfire?

Wildfire never came
I will never order from Voda again
BB 9700 will be using it for work (bargain at £257 brand new from ebay)

BTW BB9700 is nicer than I expected

Will upgrade work line in December and will get then a nice handset for personal use (BB9700 paid for by myself)

Hmm..we'll see how long you last. Were you not tempted by the cheap WebOS phones on O2?

A Pogoplug. setting up seemed much harder than it should have been. I think I'll ditch the pre-installed software & try plug linux tomorrow.

Sick of fiddling around with problematic CF card readers I've ordered up a Sandisk Imagemate card reader which should hopefully be handy.

I'm not sure why, but I bought a Logitech G19 keyboard. It has a little colour display, some programmable keys, and erm that's it really. The keys are suprisingly small. The layout is identical to my old keyboard, except there's a set of keys two wide on the left hand side. Even with that it's exactly the same width as my old keyboard, so the keys are a tiny bit smaller. If I start typing without looking I end up with my fingers on all the wrong keys, but it sorts itself out. I'd say it wasn't worth the cash in the end, so live and learn.
