More speakerage!

After last night's emotional audio-coaster we decided to pop in to Audio-T this morning to see if we could borrow something different, after browsing their special offer loudspeaker section on their website. I saw these Castle Howard S2s (image of newer S3s but practically identical looks-wise) going for £400, but in the shop they were only £350, so I've borrowed them and really look forwards to trying them tonight. Apparently they are 'smooth', which may well suit my room a lot better than anything else we've tried. Quite excited as if they work that'll be £1,000's worth of speaker for £350! :)

kissycat1000 has a pair of Naim something-or-other's she plans to try tonight as well, but she wants to try the Castle Howards on her system as well at some point, and the 914s just to see how much my room (and hifi) is affecting the sound.

Work is really busy, but we might have a break-through with the slow email problem - it looks like Messagelabs aren't trying any mail servers except for the primary - if the primary is overloaded it times out, causing delays. Sendmail immediately retrys with a lower priority mail server which works fine. If it does turn out to be the case, I wonder if they will give us some money back for debugging their servers *sigh*.
