      Thanks for letting me know you found it interesting. Other times I'd wanted to post links to other news I thought important, I restrained myself, thinking "Oh, well, others might just not care about it ..." --- But the truth is, I also enjoy most of the off topic stuff and links that are posted on this list.

      I think it said sizes go up to 1 Gig. And it gave me the impression that those might cost about 100 pounds.

      Anyway, we won't have to wait long to find out. They might already be out there. I haven't been shopping lately, so I don't know.

      That's very cool.
