It's totally up to you to let your creativity flow. The Wizard can do almost anything.

The K10 are sick! It sucks that you don't like the design :(  Should have copied mine. One of, if not the best looking K10! :biggrin:

Though it would have been better if your answers concurred with one another. mad.gif

Customs is often random in my experience. Sometimes I get a bill, many times I don't. The one sure thing seems to be stuff from Canada - pretty consistent there, but even they have exceptions for some unknown reason.

I'd expect to pay it and then be happy if you end up without a bill.

The Canada thing is because so many businesses use UPS and FEDEX. These companies always always make sure that customs gets involved when shipping between Canada and the US so that they can charge outrageous handling fees. There are a couple of class action lawsuits against at least one of these shippers because of their fees. Always use USPS for Canadian shipments if possible.


I'm happy to pay the customs fees (well not happy, let's say willing). I just am not able to - because of my shipping address.
