Quick question on these.  Do they normally come in a fairly big package?  i wouldhave to think about where to deliver them too. I it's not the right size for any letterbox.

Yes. Slightly bigger than A4 and quite bulky because of the number of parts in each package; they would easily fit through a medium dog-flap, letterbox not so much.  ;)

There is that option but no 'freebies' that way.

I've got 2 of those now as I subscribed to the test run in the middle of last year.
Got the first 4 issues for free plus the 1st free gift and the first 5 issues for free in this current run.

Not got one on my route to work that I can be sure of getting to sadly.

I must admit I think I've decided not to. It's just too big a cost for me to be comfortable. My sensible brain keeps getting in the way even though I like the idea and can afford it fine.

You are tempting me here.  Still not sure though.
It has a still/video camera...and wifi...and responds to voice commands!

I do too much so really.  My wife thinks i should, she's sure I'd enjoy the project and I am saving more than enough so it's a treat she feels is reasonable.  I just can't get past the price.

It's £10/week or £40/month, just don't add up the final total cost! ;)

That is true.  If you look at it like that it's fine.  If I find 9 quid a week that's fine.  I mean it's really fine anyway I just know I wouldn't pay that outright.

I've taken the same view of my sons uni costs you'd faint if you thought what you were paying out over four years but I just put the lot away in an account from which it will be paid and pretend it doesn't exist.

Need to do the same here.  Your other thread does show it to be a lot of fun.
