Petty burecracy on the part of the Irish medicines board resulted in the stuff not being available in the Republic for a while which led to a lot of distress in my sisters household until I discovered it was freely available over the counter in Northern Ireland.
To bring it across the border was (if one wants to get into nitpicky legal technicalities) was actually tantamount to smuggling illegal drugs but it sure as hell didnt stop me
For a while it was the subject of a lot of discussion here initially highly charged but very quickly developed into highly surreal humour as the mysterious infacol took on a life of its own and became credited with possesing all manner of wierd and wonderful properties :-)
Its a bit of an in-joke amongst long running BB'ers which still gets comes up occasionally
