Re: We've hit the big red button - manufacture has started.

Import duties are a mare

I used to import photovoltaic solar panels and from China and when i decided to look into components for inverters to use on canal boats I was surprised at all of the different levels of duty involved.

 Dragon Age Origins was far and away my favourite game of the last few years. (Dragon Age II sucked.) 

Cant believe I forgot about DA Origins, I tended to be a mage far to many times, that game nearly killed my laptop. And yes DA II was no where near as good.
