$25/£30? Since when did the pound translate to less than a dollar? :)

I was wondering that too! It should be around £15, depending on the currency markets. (We have to price in dollars because we buy our parts in dollars, and fluctuating exchange rates mean we can\'t do that and have a stable price in pounds.)

Well the usual translation for technical goods is:
1$ = 1€ = 1£
Many will say, that this is because of taxes. However i still think that it is just because manufacturers are lazy...

Price it in grams of Au (gold).

Oh, wait, I\'m getting a price break here.

How about pounds of fresh raspberries? Those I grow on the property. ;-)

Our Fresh Organic Raspberries retail at $5.00 / 6oz package at the local food Co-Op. The Co-Op kept telling us; \"Don\'t ask if we want them. Just BRING them in!\" Somewhat like the forum members wanting to order R-Pi units. Now sending our raspberries through the mail to Liz will be another matter. :)
