Well, speaking of the ROMs, the Austrian guy I ordered the 462532s off isn't
responding to any of my emails. Surprising, considering his 300-odd feedback
rating, 99% positive. The problem? He's given me a shipping price of EUR2.55
per batch of three chips, plus EUR1 for three ROMs. I've ordered six ROMs,
so that comes to EUR3.55 x 2 = 7.10. But he seems to be ignoring my mails
requesting a postage price for me. Bear in mind I'm in England (ho hum). The
auction listed "Will ship internationally" in the "Shipping" box, so either
he never really meant to sell these chips or he's screwed up somewhere.
What would you guys do? Send a few Euros in a cardboard envelope, Recorded
Delivery or whatever? Surely EUR 5.10 would be enough to ship three EPROMs
in a Jiffy bag from Austria...
*sigh*, damned if I do, damned if I don't...
