That's a jolly good idea, they're soaking right now, thanks :D

You could try getting some of those screenwipe thingies from a PC/Electricals shop though, they might clean it up OK.
I think my wife would just roll her eyes and call me an idiot. She wasn't even that bothered when I ruined the TV considering she bought it and it cost her £850 (a few years ago). If it was the other way around and she'd ruined my posh TV I'd probably have dashed a pan of hot chip-fat in her face.

I've tried proper LCD wipes but it's no use the marks are permanent, so if anyone fancies buying a second hand 32" Samsung LCD TV with some vague shadowy vertical smears down the screen send me a PM. It's perfectly watchable but I've got OCD about this sort of thing and it f*cks me off that it sits in my front room as a testimony to what a Windolene-spraying retard I am.

The Cinematic Orchestra "Motion"

Pretty much only got it for "Channel 1 Suite" which is just brilliant. The stupid thing is, it took a week and a bit to arrive through the post...the sender only lives about five miles from me!

It's a keyboard (mechanical). The surrounding outer bit is just a rest. It's not an old machine. :P

Got some bananas from a local fruit van (has been going for 30 years)
£1 for a big bag full (he was closing for the day so he had to get rid)
He also gave me a tray of strawberrys for free

Theres my snacking sorted for the next few days.
I like these little local shops
(also the fruit tastes better)
(I do wash it before eating it)
