I suppose this would be a good way to pass on software that's not really worth selling but for some people that might still be on older systems and can make good use ? (not biscuits gone soft by the way)

For example I am sure I still have a version of Kontakt 2.

That said, for some time now, a lot of software is licensed to the machine and that brings us into online registration and licence transfer. Hmm, maybe not such a good idea after all.

I was one of those chumps that bought Vocaloid when it first came out, I used it once and it went back in the box!

It's only ever a matter of time round here, it's like gravity.

Well if we're going to be picky I'd say that it's a bit more like entropy...

Not so sure about that. Try feeding a couple of hobnobs to a 4yo and watch what happens :lol:

Can I be somewhat heretical here and state that (lip trembling) I prefer Aldi chocolate hobnobs to the originals. (Hangs head in shame and gets coat...)

TBH I prefer Halls Crunchy Oaties despite them being completely chocolate free. It's a bugger that I can't seem to find them anywhere locally these days.......

If I was American I'd probably be muttering "Oreos" round about now.

Indeed, but when King George VI first proposed the motto for the Squadron emblem, it was turned down by the College of Arms because it was associated with Marie Antoinette. It was only when reminded that it was suggested by the King that they relented and accepted it.

There aren't many forums where the forumites jump between XLR cables, chocolate biscuits, French history, WWII weaponry and the College of Arms quite so readily!
