Editor's Note:

The list of mail threads above date from a time when HPR mailing list messages were copied to Gmane. At that time the Mailman mailing list software used to run the list seemed not to be able to archive messages, or possibly couldn't make them visible. We built lists of threads by reading the Gmane data and showed them here.

Since then Gmane has failed, and been restored, but the HPR lists have been lost. However, a later version of Mailman made these messages available as they should have been, so nothing was actually lost!

The above thread links have been disabled, but the threaded list for the month in question can be seen at:

Whats in My Bag

Hi Guy's just a comment on your comment on my Show 2065 the Laptops I talked about were all bought at a local computer auction that I have been going to for about 9 years, and where most of my PC tech comes from, so not donated but bought at a very reasonable cost. The Lenovo X61s cost me £35 each and make brilliant little net books that if they get broken on the move I've not lost a fortune.
