**NOTE FOR Nov. 2008: At the moment I have no way of knowing what the right price is for anything.  Feel free to make offers, and I may raise or lower the prices myself.  Any changes I make will be mentioned during the invoicing process.  Sorry for this vagueness.  If my government can do it I guess I can too?
