Mike, I was watching SkyNews last week at a mate's place, and there it said that schools are closed (down south) or only open for exams =) Anyhow, good to hear that it was probably just exaggerated and all is OK. Germany ain't much better, if there is some snow there then people are called upon to "buy sufficient food for several days in case they get snowed in". Yeah right. Good move to get the economy going, me thinks :D
Julian, I actually live in Finland ;) Everything works here just fine, yes, the Finnish train is fu#%ed up and doesn't seem to understand that the cold comes every year again for six months, but besides that life is good here & things work.
Hope you get the PHD bag in time, be sure to let us know how you like it. I might try to contact them via their website, lets see if I get a reply this time.
(I just don't get it, I want to give heaps of money to you for one of your products, and you don't bother answer?)
