not much between em now is it - far cry from the £1 = €1.4 we had 12 months ago
It'll change soon enough. Not too long ago "a barrel of oil" could be the punch line to every joke.. Look at the price today.. its gone below 40$.
The rise of the Chinese economy also isn't that big of an issue anymore. We're all broke, who will buy their stuff?
And given the state of Belgian politics (I got no government.. Anarchy in the BE!), the value of the euro will plummet before you can say "will you be my valentine".

If they release a lightweight MIDI-only version (perhaps with bare audio recording), I might be interested. Personally, I'm looking more into seq24 connected to real hardware synths. And truly recording tracks live. I love Ableton's power but I'm spending too much time tweaking and not enough time playing.

I don't see what Live 8 could offer me... unless it runs on Ubuntu and has the activation removed.

Yeah.. They give me the wrong spam. No need for a bigger Penis and I'm still 40 years away from Viagra. I do get the sniffles every now and then though :wink:

Nah thats cool. I'm substituting for a forklift driver at the Tropicana factory in Zeebrugge. Trucks coming and going to the UK all day. I'll have this stuff by boxing day :D

Not a fan of the beers and the breakfasts, but nothing beats english cold medicine.
Thats why "28 days later" was so unrealistic. Zombies? Give em half a bottle of night nurse and they'll sleep it off..
