Would you like some?  I've got *lots*.

Unfortunately you can't have 'em right now.  I know where they are in
the flat, but they're still buried under other Stuff that I kept because
I thought I might need it at some point.  The pile is rapidly getting
smaller though.

Last night I unearthed a bunch of old demo tapes from back when I worked
for Q and Select, only some of which make me want to cut my ears off.  I
suppose I *should* keep them in case musicologists of the future are
interested, but no!  I'm being good and have THROWN THEM ALL AWAY.
Keeping them for musicologists is just as bad as keeping that weird old
cable just in case I want to attach a disk drive from an ICL
mini-computer to an Olivetti word processor!
