I did send it first class - Did you?

But given that banking cheques and despatching CDs is probably outside the remit of a PM Editor or presenter's job spec I am imagining them sitting around a table into the small hours trying to work out what possessed them to think of doing it in the first place.

I've just specifically joined this blog to say how much I would love to be able to comment on the Upshares/Downshares CD. But I can't, because I haven't got it yet, despite having posted 1st class a cheque dated 19th October. And yes, I did include my own name and address - twice: once on the back of the cheque, and once on the envelope. I suppose it is possible that my cheque went astray in the post. Is there anyone there who can tell me if it hasn't been received: my display name here is my real name, and you must have a list of the names of all who have applied. And I should also like to say just how difficult it actually is to contact the BBC and get a meaningful response. It has already taken me 35 minutes to join the blog and write all this: most of the time has been spent searching your very poorly organised website looking for ways to contact someone.

Mine's turned up and a jolly good listen it is too. I've been "good" and rationed it so am only as far as track 20 so far.Fear not though - there's another cheque in the post to buy one for my sister for her birthday. Whether she'll still be speaking to me afterwards is another matter mind.....

Big Sis, enjoyed your "gloat" ("You can not be serious" springs to mind). Note that Jam-Person and Rudolph-wannabee have been zapped by Mods. Well done you lot! Penny finally dropped.

Now all I need is the chance to listen to it. Alone. For pleasures such as these are all too rare.Thank you Eddie. Thank you PM team. The verdict will follow.:o) Sat 30 Oct 2010 17:12:16 GMT+1 annasee http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/10/upshares_another_satisfied_cus.shtml?page=67#comment21 Jonnie - wasn't the statement that "At least" £5 was going to CiN, depending on how many they sold? Because of that rule about not costing the licence payer anything,all the production costs had to come out of the £10 purchase price first. I'm not sure what they would have done if they'd only sold two CD's, of course. But I imagine that since they've sold the original run & are pressing more, a much bigger proportion of the £10 should now be going to CiN? Since the costs for just pressing another 1000 will be much less as all the other production costs are already paid for. You've just got to cover postage & packing.I thought you weren't going to buy one because you didn't own a cheque book. I didn't realise you were taking a moral stand ;-) Sat 30 Oct 2010 08:13:28 GMT+1 JohnTheRedKnows http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/10/upshares_another_satisfied_cus.shtml?page=64#comment20 This post has been Removed Sat 30 Oct 2010 01:29:38 GMT+1 jonnie http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/10/upshares_another_satisfied_cus.shtml?page=61#comment19 Just a quickie thought! But rather use such a huge medium as this, these days, and equally only around 50% going to charity, due to the production costs of the CD - and let's face it in 20 years time they won't exist. Charge a fiver for the download. Far more practical? -- and I'd actually pay out for that.It's all very simple to set up, and for those that don't have the facilities to download - then they can have the CD! Google have it on tap already- so not sure why just for the sake of a CD in the hand the poor 'Children in need' are supporting the Licence payer?I may sound like Mac - but I'm a little surprised at the 50% loss on this CD hence not ordering one -- as it was set up as a charitable thing - and hence more money could have gone to Children in need. I will send them my normal donation.

A quadlatte every morning and nice fresh post for us bloggers to munch over would be very welcome... Thank you.

With the gentleman mentioned above (and skirting over the reason the wife is smiling too)- using all fingers and tootsies to tot up. Yup. I make that three satisfied customers so far. The non-stop smile is allegedly also a default expression on the faces of people who have been duped too I heard.

Don't bother, birds don't mind CDs at all, magpies came to have a look at the ones I hung up. 3. Sid, hold your tongue! Look what's happened to my suggestion that all the musical versions of the tune could be put on a CD... You know what this lot are like with ideas! ;-) Fri 29 Oct 2010 14:39:47 GMT+1 The Stainless Steel Cat http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/10/upshares_another_satisfied_cus.shtml?page=29#comment9 Here, isn't that Sara Kingdom from 1960's Doctor Who?http://www.daleklinks.co.uk/gallery/daryl-joyce/the-daleks-masterplan---sara-kingdomYou don't want to mess with her!
