(Updated 31st May 2008)

Firstly here's the link to my Amazon.co.uk wishlist. It contains some of the list below, but not all of it.

I'm often asked what I want for Christmas, birthday, etc. by family and friends, and then moaned at because I didn't "give them enough time" or some other pathetic excuse (sheesh!). So here's a list of things that I would like, giving everyone plenty of notice! OK, so no excuses now?! :-) There's something here to suit everyone's budget. So don't be afraid, step on in! ;-)

Notes:

1. These are presented in a rough order of desirability i.e. those at the top of the lists are the most desired.

2. I have now provided links (with cost) to Amazon.co.uk, Play.com, PlayUSA.com, Amazon.com and DVDCrave.com.au, where applicable. Note that these might not be the cheapest places to buy from, but they should at least give some indication of price and are reputable Internet sellers. You should check the prices elsewhere before buying here. Amazon.co.uk and Play.com are located in the UK, but Amazon.com (USA), PlayUSA.com (can ship from the UK, but also elsewhere in Europe) and DVDCrave.com.au (Australia) ship from outside the UK and hence it may take longer for items to arrive. Play.com and PlayUSA.com do not charge for postage and packing. Items which are sourced from Amazon.com and DVDCrave.com.au are quoted in US Dollars (US$) and Australian Dollars (AUD$). Check here for the current exchange rate. Any DVD imported to the UK that costs over £18 will incur VAT, import duty and handling costs.

3. These prices are correct at the time of going to press ;-) (prices last checked on 19th November 2004) Again note that these might not be the cheapest places to buy from, so shop around first for the best prices.

WARNING! Most of these items are hard to get and might have to be ordered from a normal shop, or bought over the Internet from a suitable site e.g. Play.com or Amazon.co.uk. Region 1 DVD's (those marked with Region 1) can ONLY be bought from the Internet. It might take days/weeks for them to arrive so allow plenty of time. Order in plenty of time for Xmas/birthdays! ;-)
