Picked up a pair of these myself online a couple of weeks ago.

Love them. Got them for 25 quid.

Those Adidas ones are nice. Need to replace my Pumas so I'll look out for them.

If you're interested K. 25 stg they were actually
but buy them half a size bigger than you need though I'd say.
They felt a bit on the small side.

I find that true of all Adidas, usually a very narrow fit as well.

Cheers for the link!

Yeah, I find that with Adidas as well, always having to go up a half-size. They last a while though, I had a pair that only really bit the dust after three years of use.

Bought an iPad Air 2 today. Was relucatant as I'm sure there'll be a newer one soon.
But the cunts are putting the VAT up, so had I left it until next week it would have cost 110 euro more.

They also gave me 40% off a TomTom because it was the display model.

A Nexus 4 screen replacement for €100. Probably as good as it gets.
If/when i get a OnePlus One i'd rather it be on my terms, than due to necessity.
Also i have some concerns about the success rate of the firmware that enables LTE for it in Europe, and the future of their fleshed out Cyanogen S version.
Will see what happens with the recent battery sucking "bug" (Google sabotaging CM) with the next major release.

Where are you going to get frames though? I have a few screenprints and also those Air posters now and I can't get frames big enough that don't look shite.

my missus uses a couple of sites for frames, not sure what they are. i tend to leave that side of things to her because she's always fussy about the quality of the frame.

but ikea do decent quality frames that don't cost a fortune i think.

Problem with Ikea is they don't do standard poster size frames.
