    but MIGHT involve pliers and someones finger nails

    ...
    Gulp.

    It was not I.

    I wasn't there.


    I wasn't in the office at the time.

    In fact, I don't even know where the office is.


    Wait .... you have an office?

    So the delay was whether they're still working after getting eaten and sending someone to a&e? They must be very durable.

    Re: Win a Western Digital SSD upgrade

    Entered, though I am a bit confused about the third prize:

    Third Prize: Blue 3D 250GB M.2 or Green 120GB 2.5
    If you get a choice of prize you would expect the alternatives to be equally desirable or at lest cost about the same. Of the two choices, the M.2 drive is double the capacity, more than double the speed, and probably costs about 4 times as much.

    Even if I did not have an M.2 slot in my PC (and I won the prize), the sensible thing to do would be to buy a cheap PCIe adaptor that would allow me to plug it in at full speed, without any compatibility issues.

    But remember the m.2 are slightly "used" after being miskaten for a biscuit.

    AFAIK, all cheese is made through solid state fermentation...?

    You really don't want State issued biscuits, though, as they are very solid... Think of those rock-hard Ships Biscuits you used to get from the gift shop at HMS Victory (novelty-shaped concrete, basically) and then go further. The KGB used to carry them as weapons.
