77.81 US Shipping for a Freaking USB Sized Authenticator?

I am in shock.

No: I am bent over laughing in a manical manner, with phychotic drool pouring out of my dumbfounded mouth

So the Authenticators are available to us Aussies now…

While I was in their store I decided to buy the soundtrack as well.  Trying to Pad the purchase so I browsed the limited other items in the store, and that was all that tickled my fancy.

suffered through slow connections to find.

Authenticator was  $6.50 and CD $9.99

Now add that our dollar is sitting under 0.80 US atm ( for the banks FX calc I used )  that brings the order to 118.14 Aus

Seriously.

No.

Now thinking perhaps that the system got confused, and that i can live without the CD if I saved a good portion of the shipping,  so I deleted the CD and then…

So I’ve canx the order for now.

Yes I know there is no price for security – but thats to a point… like A Medium point.

This is extorsion.  I live in metro Sydney Australia – not the behind end of the world in the middle of the desert

I think it would be cheaper to pay a courier to pick one up for me and stand in line at a po box and stick the envelope in the mailbox..

Aussie Aussie Aussie – oi oi oi

News article today in my local news Aussie Helping to shape World of Warcraft How an Aussie chef became a virtual landscaper for Blizzard. Yes the the Sarah of Sydney Comments are mine 😛 So there is hope for all of us. A friend of mine recently sent me Blizzards Job description for a Writer Job they had going – Unfortunaltly it was in california and I don’t think Im good enough to get an interview let alone the Job – but it sure would be interesting. ( I need to work on all the important things like Grammer and spelling – But i have awesome Ideas! :P) My singing tutor works at a games developer in Sydney so has put me on to their website for jobs so I can try and get a leg in. I think it would be fun!
