hehe, I saw the first advert only the other
day and wondered what it was. Unfortunately
the writing was too blurred by the disk drives :(

I recall the PET one too. That was showing
around the time of The IT Crowd (UK, Channel 4) on t
errestrial TV. I spotted what looked to
be a real PET in the corner by the entrance
in that.
That was funny, and even more funnier for
computer enthusiasts (I assume we don't call
ourselfs computers geeks/nerds? *ducks*).
