Could always spring for a 200GB external Maxtor One Touch III - I believe it's around $125 from Dell.

Nice, very nice! And has been said you can always just get an external HDD if needs be.

Rush - when are you coming to Norwich?! You keep saying next time, next time, but you never tell me! :dead:

Boo-yeah. Come to the Golden Star on the corner of Duke Street and Colegate for a quick drink.
That's the weekend before my birthday, too. :)
