From experience if someone asks you if your busy, say yes!

Pat dixit:

I think Bernard said the building would be about 460 quid retail. From that we can assume you couldn't get it for less by buying ToA's. 460 quid will get you 153 CGT's, so that's our lower bound. I would guesstimate it'll be three times that, although the fact that there will only be a few available for CGT's would suggest it's being done "at a loss".


And unohoo corrected him:

It's £245 according to DWM.

They do have a payment plan. You would need to talk to them about terms.

Go and get one, Nico ...

When I was 14 I had *two* part-time (weekend & holiday) jobs!

Payday was a very pleasant experience ...

University professors... I guess you have the «legislation» handy to know just how much you can torture your students. And then break the limit...

I started working at 13 with a paper-round. Then started doing two each morning as I liked the money and used to do 3 on a Sunday. Used the cash to buy a new bike, TV, video, Amiga 1200 and various other things

At 15 I worked in industrial greenhouses working on the irrigation systems and at 16 started lifeguarding and doing factory work.

Advice to you Nico - get a job if you want one - it helps develop character and better still, helped me to learn to appreciate money rather than moan that I had none

I had my first job at 14, cleaning out horse stables. That builds character, arm muscles and kills your sense of smell!

It was fun, one fo the perks was free riding lessons.
