Welcome, helgecko, Peaches and Bikkits!
Helen, thanks for leading so many Aussies here!
Peaches, sorry office work is so boring, hopefully we can make things a bit brighter.
Bikkits, so glad to meet a fellow "technoretard" - love the term!
I've heard of a Coke float before - US has them, but the more popular one is the root beer float. I always thought the emoticon was downing a pint!
