Oh, you got that one did you ;). I had some other stuff off that seller before (inc a ZX80) but having 3 German QLs was enough for me so I let it go. So I got the worst one... :lol: :lol: :lol: No, there was nothing QL related in the other stuff so you're ok. Now I understood :lol: what you were ta...
