So who is this?
...a 27 year old PC and network support specialist, currently working for Abbey
National Financial and Investment Services in Glasgow, Scotland, who are nice enough to
fund my thirst for toys - thanks! Recently, I worked for several years within IBM,
supporting end-users and dealers with questions on a wide variety of PC products and
software. That's where I developed my love of ThinkPads.
Anything small and shiny, preferrably with buttons and a need for electricity...
ThinkPads - If IBM do anything properly, it's build notebooks. It isn't a notebook unless it's angular and black. Curvy cream things? Must be for girls to keep their makeup in...
Microchannel - In 1988, IBM brought us Plug and Play. In 1993, Intel brought us Plug and Pray. Progress, eh?
Minidisc - 74 minutes of digital music on a 2.5" re-recordable disk, with proper track titling and playlist editing functions. Oh, and the portable units are small and shiny, with buttons and a battery.
Land Rovers - Fifty years as the best 4x4xfar. Ever heard of the Land Rover hovercraft, the amphibious Land Rover, or the Land Rover that pulled 120 tonnes of railway carriages? I can't remember when a Suzuki, a Toyota, or a Vauxhall Frontera (snigger) last did anything like that.
Lotus cars - Lots Of Trouble Usually Serious or Low Outlay Toy Uniquely Styled?
Minis - Take four kitchen chairs, add one Issigonis, mix, and come up with the best small car of all time.
Star Wars - yes, I still want an X-wing in the garage. Hence all that redfive nonsense...
Chocolate, doughnuts, gravy, brown sauce, and cider.
... chocolate, most polite names, and e-mail addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
