This made me laugh. Lots.
EDIT: Drat it. It's gone. Apparently ebay didn't get the joke. Suffice to say someone was auctioning 2 cd's found in his courier office, containing password protected database files. Last I looked it had reached £25.

I've just posted in another thread that the discs have been found.  They're being given away with the Daily Mail on Saturday.
