The Paul Vigay has had mostly ex-argonet signing up to his new service, but
will target other people in the future. Hope to be able to have a "salary"
from his new ISP soon.
A punter who was talking to him seemed to almost idolise him because his
support really is "that good"!
I think he was getting scared by the photos though ;)

Seems they want a bit more than a pound for it... now if only I hadn't
brought my laptop I could slip one in my bag ;) It really is that small.
One punter suggested putting it in a CD drive bay on a PC for a hardware
VRPC, and another said he wanted one to take apart and make a laptop from it.

Matt Edgar of A6 said that sound doesn't work properly yet, and that the
serial port is a bit dodgy.
Developers get a fifty quid discount on the machine, but have to pay it to
upgrade to the release version later, if they want.
