    Thanks mate, there are quite a few lists around now on the web, I only kept this thread alive because of some requests made back in 2008.

    Cheers,

    I agree generally, but.... some of the names are quite long and drawn out if having to write repeatedly, and for cases such as eg. "list machines you own..." , if you are trying to list many titles. There is a time and a place I guess
