RE: WP34S USB and IR board release
Agh, I didn't realize Deutschepost had changed their rules such that a Brief (letter) can now only be documents! That's terrible news.

Over the past 5 years or so I have bought (for other hobbies) a lot of merchandise off the German version of that auction site and had it shipped as Großbriefe or as Maxibriefe. The Großbrief would let you ship 0.5 kg for 3.45€ and the Maxibrief was up to 1 kilo for 7€. It was quite a deal compared to most European shippers. Sigh.

Also, I've had orders (larger boxes) of stuff with stated value of a few hundred US$multiple times. I've never been hit up by US Customs for import duty. I think they don't start caring until it's into 4 digits somewhere$1000? Or maybe the \$2500 stated up above. In any case, it won't be an issue here.

[EDIT]
My desired order was correct on the Google Document, but I think I'd actually like to now increase the quantities from 2 of everything to 3.
