    Just a bit of a mini-rant...

    In the good old days (4 years ago), ADC was charged in USD and came in from the US. Today, after noticing how well the NZ dollar is doing, I considered jumping in and signing up for another year of ADC. However, ADC is now being charged in NZD, at the usual "international premium". When did they do this? Select is USD499 = NZD667, but they now want NZD799 for it! When did they change this?

    It doesn't look it it - it seems that they'll only sell to a US address now.

    I can't justify paying an extra 33% (assuming I wouldn't be taxed for the US "version") for it, so I'll wait until the retail release.

    I think they did it at the beginning of the year.

    I got mine before the changeover but if I renew I get stiffed for UK VAT on top (£271.90 + VAT of £57.10). That's $545+$115 given the US dollar is worth less than the Albanian Lek these days.:D

    At least mine's tax deductible as a business expense...
