    Hi, just wondering if you managed to get the frontline you were looking for?

    Then I went back to Amazon and found 6 for 17.99, cheaper than the ones I got in February - free delivery, ordered yesterday and arrived this morning - if only all niggly annoying problems were as easily sorted!

    Same for me - darned annoying if people have already claimed (and been 'charged' for) the voucher.

    I've been out whoopsie ing tonight.

    Far too much to photograph.

    I added it up roughly in my head and it came to just under 6. I had a womble to cover most of it.
    Going through the till it came out at 16. I was charged full price for yoghurts and a large Thorntons chocolate cake. So of I trot to the CS where I got 2 giftcard.

    So I was paid to take the lot away

    I've had a look on eBay but I don't really know what I'm looking for. Have you got a picture to compare it with?

    They are asking crazy prices for some signed shirts but asking and getting the price you want are 2 different things.

    Good luck regardless.....have you received it yet?

    In 1998 when it first launched as a browser it was a lot better than Alta Vista which was the only other usable browser offering at the time. But gradually over the years they have become a monster (not unlike Facebook has) and if you value your privacy then it is best avoided.
