You do realise that we from around 400km away do have to fetch the customs packages from Helsinki, or Vantaa now(?) as well, or pay exorbitant postage and handling fees to have it shipped to us? :)

It's not as bad anymore, you can take care of it through the internet and after you've payed the customs and VAT Itella gets the go ahead to keep on trucking (you don't have to pay the postage twice anymore, thankfully). So it's not that bad really.

I came across it in an article in Tietokone. Laughed when they said "you sometimes had to drive even tens of kilometers to the customs office". Try hundreds. =)

Bollox typical hayhats thinking there's driving space in _urban_ areas :-D And since owning a car ain't a good option around here do you have any idea how much it costs to go to the customs and back now let alone the 2 and a half hours it took me without lining up at the customs? I'd rather get stuff to the local post office and pay for it. Itella charges a bunch 24 something i think so the double regional ticket would leave a modest hourly wage for fetching using public transport. It's still a crazy idea to stuff businesses and the people by having them run around. After all the ancients said that nothing is out of place if it's expedient. If time was money in ancient times think of it now. The state saves maybe a penny or two and the whole nation runs errands and burns imported fuels etc. while not doing something more productive. Bah humbug! A lot more people get screwed by moving Helsinki customs office to Vantaa than in the Kuopio region. It contributes to the taxation levels. Oh you're students never mind then :-D

Not so much personnel cutting and wages savings for the state i think because one of the officers there today worked in Helsinki.

Glow TB not so long lasting and bright for a very small time and even then less bright than Wizard and Ion. So definitely old generation disc regarding lighting up with 200 lumen wide dispersion torch. Eclipse Axis works as well as the Ion if not a hair better. I didn't do a side by side comparison so it's only from memory.

UV flashlight, low wavelength, charge between holes.

Some innova glow sucks, from what i've seen the more opaque/glazy the disc the dimmer it glows. you want the clearer stuff.

MVP Eclipse discs hold glow really well. Where the hell is Discmania at with glow? I need a glow MD2

UV being invisible is dangerous if it shines into your eye and you don't turn away.

Glow PD and Glow P DD2 too?

Is it spelled catherax? The eye disease of normally elderly people that makes the eye opaque. It's caused to a large extent by UV at least some forms of it are i've been told.

mary jane is a prescribed medicine that fights cataracts...

so it's probably a combination of both squinting and redness
