Keep them for those icy winter mornings, they fit neatly in the glove compartment. :)

My mate had all his cassettes stolen from his car - all except the Barry Manilow ones.

Make your own conclusions.

So do people buy old Sky cards on ebay then? Why?

Quite a lot of people buy cards on Ebay - some are anoraks (sorry, collectors) but some just hope that they can get the cards working again. About as much chance of that as of winning Lotto Extra. But, if they want to spend their money !?!

Official line is that you do not own the card - Sky do - and require you to return it if you receive an updated one or stop subscribing.

Anyone ever done this?
