    I am not tempted by "strings runs" and "sphere".
    Do you think that "strings runs" and "sphere" are still today must-have?

    Have fun! I haven't pulled the trigger yet, but pretty much decided to buy Ark 1 (and only 1), just so I can stop thinking about it. The round robins on the short and long marcatos where the final straw. Don't even have the time to install the SSD that I need to install the library on right now x].

    OK, can't seem to find it on the NI website - does anyone know if you check out with credit card (rather than paypal for instance) if they charge an additional processing fee? Thanks! - @EvilDragon do you happen to know?

    It's a German store, normally our regulations on "hidden fees" or declaring VAT etc. are super strict, so I doubt it, but no guarantuee. Your credit card provider might charge a fee for the currency conversion if you're paying in Euro from a US card.

    I e-mailed NI some days ago, asking if I really have to pay the German VAT when ordering from Switzerland (the difference to the Swiss VAT is more than 10%, so not negligible when ordering the Ark collection). I haven‘t heard back from them and didn‘t find the answer on their site or in their forums.

    Does someone here know the answer? Sorry for the slight OT, but the answer might influence, what I‘m going to order.

    I hear you man. FOMO is powerful stuff. I suspect I carry a crapload of it genetically. I remember when I was a kid, my old man often came charing in to our house carrying approximately 20 packs of sausages with short expiry date on them (and with short I mean like 1 day until "best before") excitedly shouting that they were half off so he had to get them! It would be insane not to!! This is like 20 cents a sausage!! He didn't even like the stuff, and many of these "must buy" delicacies can still - 30 years later - be found at the bottom of my parents' many freezers, haha.

    With that said, I may have purchased a new SSD today to accommodate some new stuff... :whistling:

    Yeah... I'm not in the US though so it would have become more expensive for me. But that was a sweet deal for sure!
