I wonder how much discount us Brits are gonna get from them... Seeing as we don't celebrate Thanksgiving over here...
My bet... 0% discount!

Damn! Where's the tongue-in-cheek icon? :P
Come on man!
Surely you remember the iconic speech by Abe Lincoln that begins "Four score and seven years ago..."
A score is a set of twenty of something...
So a score of years = 20 years...
"a full score and 19 years ago" = 39 years!
Do your research!
@Sarah: We do but only your wishes!
"...If we are excluding them from allowances then we are required to make it explicit to customers."
As a Flext customer, I received the following Text from T-Mobile yesterday:
"From 28 July we're increasng the charges for some numbers beginning with 08. For full details please visit our website at t-mobile.co.uk/08"
What a laugh... Thanks for increasing my bill T-Mobile - Having been a loyal customer since 2005, I thought I'd get a better deal... Not a shafting!
Welcome to T-Mobshaft!
I'm afraid. I'm afraid, Dave. Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I'm a... fraid. Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley, and he taught me to sing a song. If you'd like to hear it I can sing it for you.
Yes, I'd like to hear it, HAL. Sing it for me.
It's called "Daisy." Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do. I'm half crazy all for the love of you. It won't be a stylish marriage, I can't afford a carriage. But you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle built for two.
Thanks Arthur... And Goodnight Dave...
I also had to stay behind for clubs/sports at school when I was there 10 years ago.
But instead of a mobile phone that, really didn't exist in those days (oh! Such days!) my parents gave me a BT ChargeCard Homecall number. It meant that I could call home so that a lift could be arranged.
I agree that a ban on mobiles in schools should be a must. They are a nuisance!
And I can't understand how Ed Balls can say exclusions without appeal is unworkable... Surely this worked well for many years before it was implemented?
All the Latitude x00 or x10 series laptops at Dell did in fact have the battery on the front-right hand side of the base. I know as we have a number of each of these models in service at the moment, and I had to check them all for the battery failure.
But I agree, this does look like a set up! Who rests their laptop on a fire-proof tray like that?
A new reality tv show which pits Alan Sugar against a number of rival Managing Directors to see who will actually run BAmstradB. The Judges include Simon Cowell (Well, why not?); Rupert Murdoch (Who will let each of the finalists manage a company of his for 6 months, then pick the one who will work for the least money!) and be hosted by Kate Thornton.
