    Shame - they were always handy for a network card on a Saturday when you have a server down.

    Absolutely, it will be a shame if they can't be saved. They will join the long list of companies I have fond memories for like Tandy (who I worked for), Rumbelows and Comet

    I find it difficulty having sympathy for businesses that fail to address clear threats, like the emergence of new technologies and the competition that brings. The brand name alone would have saved them if they'd taken the step of going online only several years ago.

    Saying that though, it is a pain that there's nowhere to get urgent components and tools from now.

    Agreed, almost never the cheapest for any item you care to choose

    Never used them except in an emergency. Always way too expensive.
