It's tempting, gel, but I have previous arrangements...

RE: Anyone Doing Anything Exciting Tonight?

Just making up my list for hopes for 2013:

1. Peace in the Middle East

2. An honest review of an Apple product

3. A Naim unit to last a fortnight.

I think I've got an outside chance of the first one, but the other two is pushing it a bit.

RE: Anyone Doing Anything Exciting Tonight?

We were going to London to watch the fireworks, but the more I read about possible cancelled trains, the less inclined I am to go. 

It could be a night at a local with a band on, and if that doesn't happen, it's a night in with a 32" Samsung, the Kuro has gone. <img src=" />

Not sure what my hopes are for 2013, probably just seen how it goes and see what opportunities arise.  Hopefully some good ones.

I was going to say are you going on the train, I wouldn't fancy that!  If I am not asleep I will watch the fireworks off my balcony.   Smile. Or perhaps inside!
