You're all missing the best deal going....say what you like about the merits of the (betamax-esque) DVD+R or (mmm...nice) DVD-R format...


Komplett:

NEC 1300 combo CD/DVD(+-)R/RW (up to 4x)for EUR259 inc. VAT

It's a winner at dinner

James Melody I believe you work for compustore?
If so this is against the rules of this board.

Yes I work for Compustore, however I thought this was a particularly good deal. I ran this by Vexorg, explaining the situation beforehand, and he said go ahead.

I have not to my knowledge met Blade before. And I resent having my occupation splattered across the forum. A simple PM or email would have been advisable before "naming and shaming" me.

Blade please think before you act in future.

Name and shame???? You'd be in the sin bin if that was the case. My post was very polite and I'm just doing my job here. I don't PM people who break the rules and you'll find thats the normal procedure around here. I didn't know you had that cleared with Vexorg so get off your high horse.

Well can you tell me how you know who I work for? And also why you think you can let everyone know?

I'm not trying to be a git but, I followed the rules, and I don't like personal information relating to me being given out.

You were reported.

Also I asked you in my post to confirm if you worked for them, you're the one who said you did.
