I might be able to make one in a minute if I already have a square piece of paper, so no.

Yes.

A computer that runs DOS (even if actually hooking it up and booting it would take longer)?

And btw, the autoredial phone was the greatest thing. Mine's a Panasonic Easa-phone KX-T3155. It's the only one I know of that does this. When it died, I actually bought transistors to repair it with (and did fix it) just for that feature, which I use rarely but love it when needed.

Nope. If I was at my other house, I'd have access to loads of computers that run RISCOS. But none with DOS.

Sounds like most of my wardrobe. OK, I can get to my graduation gown (bought 24 years ago [oh gods!]) or my wife's wedding gown from 19 years ago (and she is keen to point out it still fits her).

Can you get your hands on your favourite work of fiction in 15 seconds?

Foreign service, so too easy. 25 Swedish Kronor, 15 Turkish Lira and 27 Jordanian Dinar just by emptying the back pocket of my jeans. Oh, and an embarrassingly small amount of UK sterling.

My daughter is upstairs revising for her GCSEs but I thins that is both more than 15 secs away and would seriously hack her off so I'm going with 'no'.

Suspect my daughter has one but it would take more than 15 secs to explain why I'm looking. She went through a serious Tiffany Aching phase.

Well, there appears to be copper in the multivitamin I have right next to me, but I'm guessing it would take more than 15 seconds to locate the specific 2mg within the pill.
