Lucky you, I have several thousand people living in between me, and the 
exchange, which is on the other side of the city; I love the DVD because 
I like to have a collection of different distros I can try out, and I 
cant download them, due to lack of bandwith :(  I need the DVDs ;) 

P.S. just subscribed and got the stickers instead of the promised 
mug - I'm not amused, but I still got it for 15p a quarter cheaper than 
the new subscription offers with the stickers.
