    A company called Star Trax I think?
    Sent their reps around the estate I was living on at the time
    Gave away free white dish & amstrad 200 boxes on the hope people subscribed
    Anyway the estate looked like the one off Keeping Up Appearances

    Virtually non subscribed
    The company was supposed to come back & remove the equipment
    But never did
    So me & a friend of mine offered to remove these eyesores for free
    Which were then sold off down the pub later on!

    Anyone recall the Conax hack using a laptop,a serial port lead with a card attached and running off a floppy disc ?
    I'm sure you all do but it was great fun watching the info scroll up the laptop screen -- an old Toshiba Satellite -- as the picture cleared.
    Happy days .

    That was a good weez for quite a while, if you left the floppy disk in an old PC and it booted up everytime and gave the so called complete Scandinavian Dream Package on 1W, just seen as part of the good old days now !
