Default The only thing i dont like about this site.........

coming from uk im in a small group of people and the majority are in the US and surrounding areas, so ill often see posts with ($$$) in, ive no idea how much that is, why cant the site automatically change any $signs into signs? and vice versa if i post its turned into $ for US folks.

Is that even possible? :freak:

No thats another thing, newegg is completely "for them", nobody in the uk can use them and thats the site that everyone mentions on here!
Its no big deal its just one of my little gripes really.
And ive got a converter on my mobile and got a site book marked but i dont want to keep checking prices all the time!

I can understad your pain. TF is predominately a US site, and the $ is the main currency cited. I can also understand the frustration about NewEgg since the Egg has about the best selection and great prices.

There is a list in the Browser forum with sites members have submitted. these are broken down by where they are available.

As for converting dollars to pounds, I dunno. I doubt the vB software can do it. I wonder if there is a Firefox extension that puts a converter in the toolbar or something...?

FireCal

Not just currency but it looks quite reliable and has more uses than just currency.

there's an automatic currency converter (firefox) that will change all prices on any website you visit to your selected currency its extremely accurate aswell I think it said it updates 4 times a day on the currency conversions. Don't know the name of the add-on I had it about 2 months ago but I keep changing my operating system every couple of months and have forgotten the name.

Do it in your head anyway its just half price in GBP + 10% for shipping costs so add and extra few quid..... does it really matter anyway as your an experienced poster surely you would of noticed this and or no several online UK stores and how there prices vary anyway....
