The mp3 player I mentioned has arrived and I'm really impressed with it, perfect for what I want it for.
It's great to make a (small) portion of my music collection portable, it's great to do the normal chores around the house to a custom soundtrack. It's all about setting the mood; I needed to cut the grass because it's been left a while, so what better then to get in a Jungle Warfare mood with some Vietnam era Lynyrd Skynyrd? If I could have called in an air-strike of Agent Orange
then I would have... damn Nanny State.
