Glad to hear the Revolution arrived safely.  Too bad the customs agents can't read the same information as you had regarding imprt fees.

Glad to hear at least the shipping part went OK, Ian.  You can't beat the tax max - they make the rules and then interpret them as well. And if the UK is like the USA, there is no independent appeal process - you go back to the tax people for that as well!

What are your current thoughts about a return to the US?  Are we likely to see you folks next spring or summer?
