Not too much recently apart from a Freeview PVR and a 19" TFT monitor. I'm paving the way for a big hit on a new TV/Hi-Fi system that's going to come in at about three grand.

mine are mark II's m8y never heard them called that ?
I've a set of markII's aswell mate, and I still spend money on vinyl. I bought the Stanton Final Scratch about a year and a half ago, but my bro has it now, as I used it so little it was a waste sitting in my house. Still got my decks, almost 12 years old now, still as good as new. 78's are old vinyl, they used to play them at 78 rpm's.

Anyway back to topic.

In the past year I've bought an Aopen htpc, a 19" tft, a nas drive, mp3 player, portable dvd player, Laptop, for crimbo the missus bought me an h-h jaeger 1224 and vboxII to run it, for my birthday she bought me a phone. Its more than I first thought, and my camera duffed it, so it looks like a new camera too.
