Probably turned into a Gnomad ; )

When did you order yours? I called Friday afternoon, was rather hoping it
would turn up today too.

I resisted making any comments like that! Ordered on Friday evening. Just
been advised that order was processed OK but should be 'by 3.30pm' and not
as incorrectly advised 'by noon'. Courier is Parceline, but could Sky not
give consignment number to track.

Oops, should read "...but Sky could not give consignment number to track."

My gnome has arrived. It is made by Global Communications
www.globalcom.co.uk

Initial impression is that it is a bit more substantial than expected, i.e.
heavier. Sound quality is OK considering speaker positioning, but a bit
tinny, the metal grills do not help. Will probably use with some small
amplified speakers. Comes with a smaller gnome 'base station'. Connects to
the RF, RS232 and audio phonos. Shame no phono loop out so will lose phono
connection to hi-fi (mini hi-fi with no phono out so need SCART with
breakout I think). For my use, listening to radio 7 etc around home in
highlands where no DAB signal, the gnome should be ideal.
