    I do drink about 4 pints of tea a day. Green tea, caffeine free, no milk or sugar. So I think I am good for fluids.

    Maybe a pint? But fluid is fluid, it doesn't need to be water in order to hydrate you. I've got zero interest in 'leading a healthy lifesytyle'.

    But if I take a glass of water to bed, I don't need it. Which sort of kills all those theories. I do like my salt though.

    That's harsh I know. But you have to think that it is only stuff, it isn't really essential to the emotional attachment. We just imagine it is.

    I quite like the look of them. All the 'new vintage' range look pretty good to me. I've only seen photos but the finish on them looks first class.

    Hi Macca

    I am trying to contact you on a serious matter in regard to your forum, I have written a long email but I am having difficulty sending it to you, how can I send it? Sorry I am not a regular user of this site.

    Kind regards

    Hello Macca

    100+del. It is 11.4kg and 434x171x383mm. I believe Royal Mail does not go over 10kg but ParcelForce next day is about 25 for guaranteed one-day.

    Two things you may want to know; On-screen-display is not over HDMI I think, but uses the lesser video connectors. Also, it does not decode all the lastest sound formats on blu-ray so if this is important you should make sure you have a blu-ray player that can do the decoding. All the modern players do I believe.

    Regards
    Sean
