BritishBob's E4300 was so hungry for LN2 that we had to take drastic measures.!!
Well done on the points mate

Drifts lappy decided to play up big style and he lost half the screen so in a fit of rage he threw it to the floor and then poured LN2 all over it. To this point the screen jumped into life and worked. But to make sure Scoot decided to add more LN2 and the lappy has been right ever since, lol.

I can do 10th or 17th. All transport pending though. I'll be en route from Dagmar, Ashley or Henry if they come and I hope I can buy a travel ticket from them.

Awesome. Think we are going to lock in the 10th so we can get Max and TD down, will check with the pub in the morning to make sure.
