Very shortly my beloved husband timscience will be another year older. To celebrate, Korg re-released a classic mini-synthesiser right in the dim depths of winter when his resistance to the shiny was at its lowest. This beast is now on order, as a birthday gift, and Tim has asked me to make sure that no-one gets him any presents for his birthday, only synthesiser fund contributions! If anyone would like to provide a birthday contribution to this latest addition to Tim's electronest (or just point and laugh) the poll below will enable contributions both financial and creative -- thanks in advance to all who would help advance the causes of beepy sounds, champagne socialism and cats playing keyboards:

Edited to add, muggins forgot the paypal button:
Edited AGAIN to add, you won't actually be able to put in a synth4tim ref so I shall just take it as read! Thanks kindly and apparently there is a good way to make the cats play the synthesiser (but we may struggle to persuade them to do a duet)

Can't seem to specify a reference on the Paypal end of things - take it as read that the money just sent is marked as 'synth4tim', plsthks. Also I was unsure whether it was going to charge me in USD or GBP so I panicked and it's a bit undergenerous, sorry. Tis a token though.

I'm getting GBP -- and I have a feeling the ref is autoset, sorry -- can't edit polls! Thank you kindly :D

Done. I would love the recipe for Synthesizer Pie (US spelling). I wonder if it is like Cottleston Pie.

Paid! (Had to wait until after pay day) though bloody hell paypal is such a faff. I didn't realise you had to put in an amout before you are allowed to log on. Ended up changing my password again. Arrrgh!
