    Default Aaaaaaaand here we go again!!

    Come on Steve, I am sure you could have sorted this out by now.

    Click link in email, see upgrade to 2015 price is $74.95. WHOOPS! Asknet detects I am in Oz so changes price to AU$104.95

    At today's exchange rate it should be $91.35. Why this difference. Every. Bloody. Time.

    A bit of tinkering and I got it for AU$94.86.

    Just why should I pay more of my hard earned dollars? And don't say its tax because the Australian consumption tax does not apply to electronic downloads.

    I am sure this happens with other purchases you make through electronic download doesn't it?

    IF it were me...... I would purchase using a spoofed US IP address which should resolve the problem. Not that I am encouraging others to go to the dark side for making their online purchases..... Just saying.....

    From where I am sometimes I see prices at the front page in US$ changing in the browser in GB Pounds.

    For NOF beginners: read everything here and practice on mock web sites first.
