Thanks. On that board one can almost not tell that I have no idea what I'm doing :-P

Once we manage to sort out the UK customs, there should be some more of these available soon.

For some reason, in their wisdom, even though it is a B2B transaction with the country of origin within the EU, HMRC have decided that both VAT and customs duties have to be levied on the second batch, which is not in line with the trade deal - as the customs duty should be zero.

They could not even explain it over the phone!

Piss ups and breweries spring to mind.
FFS!


Why do they put lightning conductors on churches?

Hi guys.

Here is another happy QL user with QL-VGA. I have connected my QL to a small 15 inch VGA monitor, the connection has been "plug and play" and the result is excellent. The image quality is spectacular, very clear and sharp.

Marcel, great job, congratulations! Thanks also to rwap_software for the sales service (the shipment to Spain has gone without problems).

Here my QL-VGA v2 case printed, in a nice black color (printed with Marcel's scad/stl file). The board fits perfectly and the end result is very compact.

Cool!

Cool! Mine are of course also all black, except the wooden one that I present on my web site, that was just for fun ;)

The slit is a big bigger than on my prints. Does the top sit tight?

In other news, new batch is gone, wow! :o

Currently 10 more boards exist that will go up for sale at some point. After that we'll have to discuss if it's worth to make another run.
