I was seriously considering not buying any more after the underhand dealings last time. I shall check with my financial advisor (SWMBO :D ). Steve is ready to go but unfortunately the prices have gone up and the exchange rate is all over the place. As you will see from past orders, they also take a while to arrive.

Jim
I seem to have lost the place on your progress. Could you just post a wee update on whether you have an order already placed and waiting for delivery, or whether you've been put off the whole idea? I know you can't predict delivery timescales but since I'm in the next batch it would be good to know where we are.
Thanks
Alex.

Jim
I'm afraid my nerves can't take the strain any longer of waiting for the current wheel to go bang so I've ordered one from QRG. So you can take me off the list and move everyone else up a spot.
Alex.
