So, who’s going to download this thing???

Am I reading this right?
40.00 Lbs Sterling?

I’m Interested, but not THAT interested

[QUOTE=anchorman;51029]So, who’s going to download this thing???[/QUOTE]

I will but it is going to wait until I get off later this month or early July.

I saw a draft of it 6 months ago and did not like what I saw on the new technologies etc… and the required training that is coming down the pipe to go along with it. It looked to me like on even time you work and then spend half your time off at school, at least at the beginning.

OK, I may be exaggerating just a LITTLE…

[QUOTE=jdcavo;51045]It’s here, for a little less:[/QUOTE]

Worked here, all 410 pages ;~(

Thanks for the link sir… thou art the man!

[QUOTE=Jeffrox;51056]The link led me to a blank page…[/QUOTE]

I got it, it took forever to open using my slow-ass ISP here in PI.

The 40 LBS is not how much it cost’s, but how much it weighs…

I got it on my HTC evo but since l’m in Brazil I downloaded over WiFi.
