I tried to buy an SCT3512 usb key device from and also from SCM in
Germany.  Neither will ship to an address outside Germany'

I tried the shop at for the card but I can't get into their
website with Firefox under linux nor under windows - I just get a weird error page :

"Fatal error: Call to a member function add_current_page() on a non-object in
/var/www/osc/catalog/includes/application_top.php on line 318"

It looks like security is alive and doing well in Germany.  I though we had
something going for us in Europe these days but apparently not.

Can anyone suggest a supplier in Europe who will sell outside his frontier ?
