Street market bargain was a Wacom Steel Blue graphics tablet, the one with an editing area about the size of a postcard, for £3. It has its pen and works well, so rather pleased! I played around a bit with a cheapo tablet years ago, but this one actually seems to work properly whereas the cheap one was rubbish, I may actually become a little more competent this time.

Also picked up an HP 320LX pocket computer in a charity shop - came with its case for a tenner. This probably isn't such a bargain, it's the 4mb monochrome predecessor of the Jornada etc., but the cases tend to be expensive, I think I'll be able to sell them separately and make a few quid profit.

Also went back to Oxfam in Portobello Road to check the prices of the GURPS books - didn't want to check the rest since it was getting a bit dark. Bunnies and Burrows, the one I was actually asked about, turns out to be more expensive than I thought! I have no idea why they chose these prices, it doesn't seem to have any relationship to condition or size of book.

Bunnies and Burrows - £5.99
Espionage - £4.99
Imperial Rome 2nd Ed. - £3.99
Vehicles 2nd Ed. - £4.99
Mars - £4.99
Space 2nd ed. - £5.99
War against the Cthorr - £4.99
Creatures of the Night - £3.99
Cybrpunk - £3.99

If I steal chunks of Aslan's dialogue from Rose Tyler's Bad Wolf speech - Especially "Everything must come to dust. All things. Everything dies." - will the Narnia purists complain? Or does it seem reasonably appropriate?

Am I right to think that there's a biblical source for this?

later - no, Shakespeare, of course, from Cymbeline

Golden lads and girls all must,
As chimney-sweepers, come to dust.
Arv. Fear no more the frown o’ the great,
Thou art past the tyrant’s stroke:
Care no more to clothe and eat;
To thee the reed is as the oak:
The sceptre, learning, physic, must
All follow this, and come to dust.
Gui. Fear no more the lightning-flash,
Arv. Nor the all-dreaded thunder-stone;
Gui. Fear not slander, censure rash;
Arv. Thou hast finish’d joy and moan:
Both. All lovers young, all lovers must
Consign to thee, and come to dust.

later - I've put the chapter on line, let me know if this looks OK if you review it.

Comments greatly appreciated as always. The final part will again be a couple of days, I know what's going to happen but haven't written it yet.
