That's him yes! I'm intrigued by the story of the missing cars.

Me too, sounds highly odd - they are not exactly inconspicious models

I know of the story. It makes for rather sorry reading!

Shimon came over Tuesday and told me the full story, it is highly suspicious!

Shimon is very happy with the 360 so hopefully next week it will be transported up to him.

And gone, Shimon received the 360 on Tuesday and he is very happy with it.

Time to get on with my 760.
