Jesus, it'd cost me way more than that in LPG! That is furiously cheap. And a whole day's work too! Flippin' 'eck, I get 600 for a day's programming, I'll stick to the day job if you don't mind!

100 all round is great.

If I were you I'd check the Yellow Pages and give Google a whirl.

There are usually loads of services on eBay as well.

I'm interested in delivery/pick up services for bikes.

Max, how are you planning on paying for the bike?

What if it arrives in a condition not advertised?

This is what i was shitting myself about when i bought my bike. You don't even view it yet you've paid near on 1k (sometimes more).
I just asked loads and loads of questions.

I suppose if it does arrived not as advertised then you get in touch with the seller.
Could end up being a pain in the arse though. They could easily say you or the courier have done the damage or whatever.

What job do you do, and what do you programme if you don't mind me asking?
Because 600 a day is very good.

Home automation. I make your heating go on by text, your lights go on and off while you are on holiday, your music play, and your security cameras appear on LCD wall panels. Toys, basically. Much of it is Javascript, some stuff windows/adobe flash, some proprietory.
