Awesome!

Sadly I missed seeing it at the weekend, from all the gossip though it sounds like it went down a storm.

I spoke to John Honniball about it when he was going the BBC interview. Nice piece of kit.

I'm looking forward to assembling mine!

Wasn't my cup of tea as CBA coding these days but hope it shifts bucket loads for him :)  I think one of the OCM guys had ordered one too but not 100% sure.

Oh and it's nice that RCM gets a mention, naturally :)
