    I have just discovered the new definition of Geek :) :

    Buying a new iPod mini, and running out of space by filling it up with motivational CDs!! ;)

    I guess my music misses out. Maybe I should upgrade? After only one day :eek: ??

    Cheers, Medine

    So do tell us what motivational CD's you find inspiring. I'm always on the lookout for more :)

    It might not be motivational but I have been enjoying the 16 CD Book by Bill Bryson "The Short History of Nearly Everything" Great science facts about the earth and solar system with some very interesting anecdotes on their discoveries and discoverers.

    I listen to it on the MP3 when I walk Rosie of a morning.

    Recommend it.

    Cheers,

    Sounds like that's right up Steve's alley, Simon :)
    Will recommend it to him!
