Bumbling Through

The film about our auction site went out on BBC One last night. You can watch it on the One Show's website here if you like. It was truly bizarre to see Dom Littlewood sitting next to Burt Bacharach talking about it.

The traffic this generates is incredible (as the comments testify) and the site is still running like treacle this morning.

Ironic that Amazon Web Services announced a Beta of Windows Server and SQL on the very same day.

Windows Support - Beta level support for Microsoft Windows is now available on EC2, in the form of 32 and 64 bit AMIs, with pricing starting at $0.125 per hour. Microsoft SQL Server is also available in 64 bit form.
That could have made last night a walk in the park.

Dom and Burt chewing the fat over your creation is more surreal to me than a dozen West Deans !

Why do stolen goods suddenly appear every time you are near. Just like me they long to be........

And I suppose that you expect me to believe that these stars conveniently fell out of the sky as you walked by.

You're nicked! You do not have to say anything, but it may harm your defence if you do not mention when questioned something that you later rely on in court. Further, anything you do say may be given in evidence my old china.
