    Every time I hear you talk about the "pen" all I can think of is "We can rewrite it... we have the technology" [in the style of the 6 million dollar man.]

    Side note: Did @VeryPC_Tom_B get freaked out when I emailed him? [Did he even see it?]

    The Word is mightier than the pen... or something.

    Not sure - he's on the road today demoing a VeryPC Glide Touch to a new customer so I can't ask him afraid. I suspect that he's fairly used to receiving emails by this stage in his career though!

    [He's not literally "on the road" demoing a Glide. He hasn't set up a stall on the M1 or anything]

    Yeah, makes the teacher all shouty and we have no way of quieting them. Not good.

    I probably need to borrow a 40,000v re-education stick.

    TBH it's now looking like it's a class problem rather than a computer one. [I'm still keeping the upgrade ]

    Very glad to hear it.

    Does that mean the demo is done? Or.... noooooo! Don't tell me you're posting DURING the demo! That would be so cool!

    No, Tom (and colleague, I'm a bugger for remembering names!) are already on their way back and the machine is busy looking sexy in it's place currently! It even got the school's Head very excited and the order is likely to contain an extra machine as a result
