I'd love to get a UBB or two for my Ben. Happy to pay too. I've even managed to mine a few bitcoins a few months ago that I could throw your way.

Hmm, I forgot that outside the EU there is no way to transfer money for
free :/ I'm not a big friend of PayPal.
What about using that opportunity to try and use bitcoins? A currency
that's not controlled by any government or authority, doesn't that match
the open source community's spirit? No problem if it doesn't work or
loses value. I could send you the UBBs for free as well (just to make
sure Paypal doesn't profit :)

Well, send me mail address any quantity in private mail. I can wrap it
in a birthday card, but with all that metal in the UBB, I have my doubts
that it's not noticed by customs. But then it looks like a present, and
cheap, so maybe nothing to pay for you. Hopefully they'll not mistake
it for a letter bomb :)
