Today's eBay bargains...

...were an Intelplay QX3 microscope (the cheapo digital microscope Intel sold briefly; it was aimed at the kiddy market, but it's actually quite a good bit of kit, and someone has written a Mac driver for it so I can use it with the laptop) and a two-drive Acard DVD duplicator, which I want to use at work. Combined price was 49 quid including delivery, no warranty on either but both work fine. I'm rather pleased...

Having said that, the DVD duplicator didn't have any manual and Acard's site seems to be down. Most of the menu options are reasonably obvious and I've successfully copied a couple of disks to test it, but it'd be nice to get hold of the instructions if someone happens to have them in PDF form or something. Apart from anything else, it looks like it can be connected to a PC and used as external SCSI drives, it'd be nice to have the documentation on that.
