Awesome, in which case we need to decide on a date, and then force polly to take time off.

So, uh, what's the plan? I have to be in Nelson over the easter weekend, but I'll be heading up to Wellington to see some friends and my sister a week or two after that.

Any meetup over Easter won't work for me either... this HDD thing looks like fun, how long until someone does a practical joke with it?

The 500g is on the way back down to vslayer, sent it today. Ill probably pass on the 1 tb if it comes round in the next month or so, i need to buy an internal before itll be of any use. I only have 250g in my system so its kinda pointless. Basically, even if it does come to me, dont worry about allocating any space for me, i can gayrantee i have nothing to put in it.

A holiday is possibly the hardest time to get off work if you're set to be working or covering for somebody already. Even if it were possible for pollywog to get it off s/he said s/he'd be away Easter Weekend.

I can't get time off work the week before easter, cos it's hell of busy, and the 4 days i get off over Easter are going to be consumed by sex, drugs and rock and roll.

If you have stuff to add to the HDD, where abouts in the country are you? So we can figure out where on the list you should be added.

Speaking of which, the coping should all be done... and my portion is too big again :(
I am going to shrink it down, and then send it to Jack today.

Way down in Scot country (Dunedin). It'd have to be a weekend, and I'd have to talk my parents into letting me go with a bunch of strangers I met over the internet to the other end of the island for the weekend. Yeah...

Well the sneaker net that is going on is neat. We have a HDD full of media that we send between each other. Each person adds to the list. And then sends it to the next person. We have 1TB hdd being sent around the place.

In that case, I'll do music shall I? I can get lots of old-school rock, and maybe some classical if I can figure out how to rip audio from video. On another note, is there anyone in this thread that can play an instrument/ read sheet music?
