    I'll be there, but won't be getting there till about 8:30.

    Hopefully any queues will have gone by then. Just want to be in and out as quickly as possible.

    Ah yes, Trafford = free parking!

    So forgive the obvious question, but what's the deal here? On sale at 6pm Friday? Is the Trafford store staying open late?

    Hey yeah - I moved here with my wife from New Zealand last year. Two users in one town eh? Time to start the Macc local users groups? Hehheh.

    Turns out my online Apple Store order has changed to prepared for shipping - I was going to cancel but too late now. Fingers crossed it arrives on Friday!

    I was there, right on the other side when you did that video! :p

    Was NOT expecting anything like the scene there tonight, I got there before 5 and decided to do some shopping! We arrived at the store only to go round the hugeeeee que to the end.

    Anyway, we all got our tshirt and leopard!

    Good to see Apple doing so well.
