    What's it like, their offices? Presumably a massive warehouse as well? Lots of staff milling around? Or is it all smallish operation? Anyone got any pictures of the place, I'm just strangely interested in things like that :)

    Never been, too far away, though did pass once when going to Alton Towers, twas a sunday though. Wish there were more places in Essex/Bristol to actually be able to see some high end hardware/cases etc before you buy.

    Its abit sparce in there at the moment, in the old warehouse there used to be 5 or 6 computers set up showing benchmarking type programs, but the new place was just rather plain.

    I been there a fair few times, in both (new and old) you were only allowed in the shop front where there was very little to browse etc. The new premises are considerably larger but has virtually nothing on display - just a front desk and two PCs to browse on.

    I refuse to go.....simply for the fact it takes you through the biggest xxxxhole on the planet....otherwise known as Stoke on Trent.

    Seriously, that such a dump is possible in 21st century Britain is just too depressing.

    It either looks like OCUK's warehouse or crumbling 19th centurey red brick terraced houses

    Out of sight, out of mind.....


    I wont get a ban for the above observastion.....will I ?.
