I have vague memories of the Express Man, who carried a copy of the Daily Express under his arm in holiday resorts. You had to go up to him and say' You are the Daily Express Man - I claim my £5.00" A lot of the time you went up to complete strangers and said the same thing, but I suppose that was the point. I hasten to add that I was a very wee boy at the time.

Uncle Mike,
It's unwise to sit next to someone with I'M LIVE GUY emblazoned across his chest. By default, you become DEAD GUY. Well-meaning souls might throw a sheet over your head, place pennies over your eyes or, given the topicality of the issue, attempt to remove your organs for philanthropic medical purposes. It just isn't worth the risk. Especially not for a computer as daftly monikered as the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Netbook.

Seems 38minuters scooped most of the last two days' worth of laptops!


I thought it was very good of you not to take the netbook! I wonder if anyone has tried DMing to offer free coffee and coverage only to stage an ambush!

Fraser Edwards

Nice write-up Mike :) It was your twitpic that inspired me to get out there!

When I caught up with him later on he said you were a good guy!

My experience is here

Did you at least get a shot of the notebook then?

Wonder if hides 36 notebooks under his hotel bed?!
