I was looking for that when I found the small print about only being for those in the states. Damn and blast!
I had filled it in already, and got the message saying the drive was in the post. And they let you specify os address, so I might still be surprised??
Thanks if I am, Bob.

Good work Bob. I'm always up for a freebie and as MS already have my details anyway, I'm not opening up for any more junk than I already get
