dragons got fangs!

Oh noooo

amazon.jp has switched from DHL to Fedex.

amazon's 3000 yen shipping charges + amazon's 300 per item handling charge + Fedex's $30 paperwork handling charge + laughable GST (eg $1.50 on a $25 order) = too damned expensive to order from Japan any more.

Oh well. It was fun while it lasted, but fun never lasts.
