Have you stopped going into a recoud store to buy music because you can get it all online now? Or have you been so disappointed by the online shopping process that you now stick to the high street?

He may live in a large town where he can pick and choose, but I like many others live in an area where there is no cable or Ionica. It will be at least two years before we are connected.

To write and send a letter by post costs approx 31p per letter. For the cost of just one typed letter, you can send rather a lot of e-mail and it arrives as soon as it is sent.
