My accountant isn't being very helpful. I have a few stores outside of the US that wants to carry some of our products. I'm getting very funny emails... a few of the people emailing me don't speak english, so it's making it very hard to communicate.

"With international invoice and tax number / vat?" He asked me for this too.

Cool: while cleaning some recently purchased wood type I found a few surprises at the back of some letters: a previous user had more or less skilfully carved out some letters he or she apparently wanted badly. Blogged with pics here.
