    Allo guys,

    Just saw this in T3 adverts at the back.

    http://www.karputer.net/karputer.php...epac_ultimedia

    OMG we're looking at £1749.998 including the VAT, and it aint even installed... Does mediacar know that their software is being used too?

    Just thought I'd let you guys know.

    You did realise that the price listed there was in £GBP, not $USD. that works out at $3,202.299 USD?

    For the sort of hardware that we are using plus XP home (what does that cost these days at trade prices? About £40GBP? Maybe less?

    And what do you reckon the USB radio is?

    Maybe well marketted, but it ain't nothing that you could put together for 1/3-1/2 of the price and maybe even get an audio installer to fit it for you.

    The software being GPL, is that for sure? I know people showed the properties screenshot, but could it have been a screwup? Anyone get a hold of Coyote and ask him if it was his intention to make it GPL?
