Forget the War of Independence...Let's give thanks for the SALES!!
Since we're busy thanking folk for the Group Buys I would also like to thank EWQL , Post Musical Instruments and others for their SALES opportunities, which is really useful to us over here in the British Isles.
I, for one, greatly appreciate these, as we have a tradition of dollar price conversion to British pound (let's be clear what this means: if it's $50 in the USA it's £50 in the UK....What?)....which means USA stuff is strangely expensive in Britain.... I don't know who is ripping us off, but let's say this; they are alive and well and living in our islands!
I would, usually, rather buy samples/software from the USA even when, with tax, it amounts to the same as it does buying within the British System!! At least the originators get the cash......That's the way I see it.
