The underlining only appears in pro silver pages and remains blue even though the text is red.

How to change screen colours if you are using Latte (it's a different procedure/screen layout to Pro Silver).

Only difference is you click on the little person symbol instead instead of a moniker to take you into user preferences, otherwise the same.

This link explains the details.

R-
At the time I was in Cyprus who are notorious for paperwork and rule books, etc.

However I know folk who have had stuff held at their Post Office in UK (often coming from USA) where they have had a card saying the item is ready for collection once you have paid the taxes.

I await with trepidation for my relay panel coming from China via the Amazon route. If its a courier then it will likely be OK but if its Royal Mail I may have to get my wallet out.

Don’t know how much your relay panel costs but according to Rogers link if under £15 it will not attract VAT and it should not attract VAT if the Amazon listing included VAT. As for Customs Duty it would need to be in excess of £135. That’s my understanding of the conditions.

I ordered a new motherboard bundle from Amazon at 11am yesterday Tuesday and it was delivered at 08-30 am this morning Wednesday, it obviously was not coming from the far east!

I ordered a soldering iron from RS On-line at 17:30 on Wednesday, it arrived by the postman at 08:30 Thursday. I used the iron that afternoon and they didn’t take the money out of the bank until close of play Friday.

Superb service all round.
