Yes, I'm the person who got these into Australia; I still have plenty, and
will be hawking^H^H^H^H^H^H^H offering them for sale at the christmas barbecue.

They're about the size of a large orange, black except for a portal at the top
and a white area with 1000(binary) on the bottom.  Ask it a question, shake it
a few times, and the correct solution will mystically appear in the portal.
It could be "Caffeine", "RTFM", "Network Error" or another of the twenty
answers kept inside the sphere.  You can spoil your fun and find out all
twenty by going to http://members.verizon.net/~pgrzelak/1000/, Paul Grzelak's
original site.

I have them on sale for $18, plus shipping to wherever you are in Australia.
Let me know if you want one.

Have fun,
