Subject: Re: JBS: DC- regulator blown second time; what's the cause?

Re: JBS: DC- regulator blown second time; what's the cause?

Hmm, yes, another few days ...well, you never know your luck. As for
shipping, I am just _sure_ that if you ever contacted someone and said "Hey
dude, can you put <this> address on the box, and put bigger stamps on it
please" I can't understand why any (private) trader would say no!? I guess
ebay forces you to enter shipping costs, and people can't be bothered to
look up all the international prices - seems the only logical reason to me
(a non ebay trader.)

In the mean time, Jorg-the-knowledgable has made you a mighty offer, take
time to make him your first port of call ...he ships internationally - LOL ;)
