Yes, that was me. And there's no need for "debious truths" - anybody 
that wants to can check the price right now:


Mmm, that *is* interesting... The price has indeed changed to £2,035. Ah 
well, it might as well be £2,000,000 for all the difference it makes - I 
will never own anywhere near that kind of money. :-(

PS. I wonder why it costs more on UNIX...?
