It Pi Press would use IOSS it would only cost the tax, and there should not be any additional fees beyond that.
yes but seems they are not doing it (yet) then (if they ever will do it)

Re: European people don't bother ordering books / issues from raspberry pi press anymore ...

before brexit i did not have to pay the extra 15 euro handling / import fees. Due to brexit UK parcels are considered the same as lets say china and we have to pay import handling / fees on it. So the cost would only have been the 12 euro (pre brexit) and not 27 like i had to pay now (after brexit)...

i recorded the effects by hooking up the raspberry pi to an hdmi capture card. It's not only glxgears that is affected other benchmarks also (to some extend 1-5 fps).
