Communication was very good, prices were fair, descriptions accurate and the parcel was fantastically organized and secure. :D All discs worked in my FZ-1 (PAL).

I loved it but I got stuck and I've never finished it. Me to. It was the second example of a puzzle where you had to ensure the lines didn't cross or something.
