It's not a good price - at current rates, £3.95 is a hair over $6. I just
had a quick look on Pricewatch and I came up with a number of vendors in the
states at prices from < $0.90 a piece. Granted that was for 1000 :-) but I
saw single unit prices from $1. For those I'll call a couple of the better
priced ones later on (wait for the Californicators to wake up) and get a
quote for say 100 (I don't think that'll be overboard, and it's only a guide
price anyway) to include shipping etc. I have recently mailed the guy in
Linuxcare again about the BBCs, mentioning the imminence of the AGM but I've
heard nothing further so I think we can assume that we're not getting a
visit from the BBC fairy :-(
