    Is there any chance of there being a die cast modle of the origional Red dwarf, or blue midget?

    Then no, there is no chance of there being a die cast model of Red Dwarf.

    Oh ok the original Red Dwarf (any news of the spell checker Andrew?) not just a Red Dwarf die cast model. Probably not going to happen but never say never.

    Don't remember us saying there would be one.

    My browser spell-checks as I go along anyway...

    It was more a hope that there would be one as there might be some people who find it useful. I use the Firefox one myself but apparently other people could use it. And for some reason Mozilla don't seem to think Firefox is the correct spelling of their own browser.

    I had to install a South African English spell checker, as I couldn't find a British English one.

    Apparently it contains the words imbizo, braai and bakkie in its vocabulary, which is nice.

    Did you try looking under English - British? It is about 2 above English - South African on the dictionaries list.

    Where do I find the dictionaries list?

    I got the South African spell checker from this list. It was the only English one on there that doesn't require you to sign up.

    Try going to 'Tools' and 'Add-ons' then click on 'browse all add-ons' then 'dictionaries and language packs'. Where on earth did you find your list?

    What are the current Die Cast models that are out there atm? I have the Corgi Scutter from buying the series 8 dvd gift set, but I cannot find this item for sale as a stand alone item. Ive just bought the Red Dwarf, Starbug with Lister and Rimmer figures box set and they look fantastic though I'm in two minds whether or not to take them out of the box. Are they're any more models like a blue midget etc?

    I've got the corgi Starbug and the skutter. I'd love to get the Starbug Playset (wish I'd got it on Play when I had the chance! That was the cheapest I've seen it!) I'd also like to get hold of the Red Dwarf corgi at some point. (Ok, it's the new version, but these models have lovely detail. Not the new new version of course, but I'm sure you know what I mean.)

    My Lister Head Knocker was wrecked, so I might grab another at some point. I have the other three though, and wouldn't mind getting a Psiren if the new versions ever become available. (I was never to sure of the Rimmer in gingham dress... I seemed to find it rather disturbing...)

    apparently starstore.com has a starbug playset, although it doesnt say how many they have in stock or if the page has been updated recently. Ive bought a cppl of calenders off them before and been to their real store without knowing I had. I might go back to their real store again soon as its not to far from me.

    I find it a bit silly that you have to manually input the setting from new, it isn't there automatically, so if you didn't check, you would never know! You can add any word to the list anyway. Saves correcting Carbug every time you type it!
