I am as mad as hell!
With Huge, the Floppytronics people and the TOTALLY magical nature of that setup!

Mad because I am not doing things I should, the place is a tip and NOW I have a further massive distraction to learn about and listen to!!

What would REALLY confuse them was WHY they were called "floppy" because neither size were!
