  1. The "why it is difficult to leave" thread

    Bon voyage.
  2. Import Duty On PCs

    Thanks.  I spoke to the sales department at Quiet PC.  There is a product information site for foreign prospects but an EU presence.   Sorry big typo "but an EU presence" should say "but no EU presence".  I D I O T !.

  4. Import Duty On PCs

    I "need" a new PC.  Previously, I have purchased my PCs from Quiet PC in England.  In these post Brexit times such a purchase will probably attract German VAT and import duties which might make Quiet PC uncompetitive.  Because of this I am minded to use an EU based supplier.  Before I close the door on Quiet PC, can anyone here tell me what the additional costs would be?  All help (and ridicule) gratefully received.

    Seconded.  For me having two screens works better than I ever though it would.  If/when I buy a Windows 11 machine I'll seriously consider three screens!  
  6. Death of Gerd Müller

    One of my overriding memories of him is the "phantom" goal he scored in the 1974 World Cup Final.  The "goal" was disallowed because, at the time, everyone agreed it was off-side.  Subsequent slow-motion analysis proved, conclusively, that he was on-side and that the goal should have stood.  This "goal" was a vivid demonstration of Muller's unparalleled reading of the game.  Fortunately, the error did not affect the result.  If I remember correctly the referee was English (Jack Taylor).  RIP Der Bomber!
