  1. Fingers crossed for you then Mike - I did think at the time that the sale of the open 3s could mitigate the cost of the F169. 🙂
  2. Is it on your invoice Mike? I recall him saying that but I couldn’t say which lot it was.

    I used to be scared of spiders, a phobia I inherited from my parents. But I once kept scorpions, and by extension tarantulas. The worst I kept was a Pterinochilus murinus, known in the pet trade as an OBT - Orange Bitey Thing. The sod could teleport, I tell you, and it had to go. I had a cool Uvicularia metallica called Lars though. After that your common or garden Tegenaria gigantea seems a bit tame. Dysdera crocata has a much better set of fangs.

    I’ve heard that these huntsman spiders have been deemed responsible for human deaths, although not from envenomation. Apparently when you leave your car with the windows open in hot weather they’ve been known to climb inside and find somewhere nice to hide, like behind the sun visor. When you drive home and make the turn into the setting sun, you flip the visor down and it drops into your lap causing you to panic and crash. Any truth or just urban myth? Atrax robusta is a nasty piece of work, from what I understand.

  6. Click on the Advanced box, then at the bottom of the page there's a link to proceed.
  7. Same for me Mike, but I can override it. What browser are you using?

    What?? I don't believe it!!

    My car entertainment system has a cassette player.
  9. Congratulations. Looks a decent example. Out of idle curiosity, if you don't mind me asking, did you mysteriously get it for your maximum bid?

    I've been known to spend an hour looking for an F169 without remembering to check for the dot.

    I do like a nice fleur-de-iris.
  15. I'll be honest, it was Pete that drummed that one in to me.
