Are you a geek? Wanna know something great? ThinkGeek delivers to Slovenia!

Finally, I said! Around this time last year I wrote to them and asked if they could change their policy since we are in EU now and so on. Their answer was not very polite - straight NO. I was sure they are complete ass holes until today. I forgave them in a second.

Today I came across some cool T-shirts and somehow I ended at ThinkGeek. Just for fun I checked the shipping rates for neighbor countries. And there we were. A pleasant surprise indeed!

The next logical step was to get me a couple of things for my birthday! And I did...

If you want to get me anything else and you need my shipping address, just let me know! There are tons of cool geek useless gadgets there!

I had a similar encounter with I wanted to order some DVDs, but they don't ship to Slovenia -- EU or no EU. I see that they still haven't changed their policy though:

I really don't get it.

Happy birthday, Dave! Funny, I know a lot of people having birthday after the Christmas and New Year and they are all complaining that they do not get big presents and that they cannot organize a good party, because friends are run out of the money or their partymeter is below zero! Hope you've got a lot od presents and that the pary was/will be good!

Well, about $40 is still a lot for shipping fees.

Kar se mene tiče, zlahka. Jaz sem sicer ene zadeve že naročil in so tudi že v SLO. DHL mi je poslal obrazec za carinjene, pa da vidimo kaj vse se bo dogajalo še s tem in koliko bo še dodatnih stroškov. Bom sporočil...
