Data Protector books in PDF format for Europe; also it's now possible to buy them (anywhere) using Bitcoin

Apparently folks in Europe having been having problems buying my books through Distribly; presumably this is related to EU VAT.

As an experiment I have set up a breathtakingly ugly Shopify store for Data Protector books which should work for anyone, anywhere. It accepts Paypal (and hopefully therefore European credit cards as well). It also accepts Bitcoin -- contact me for a discount code to get 50% off while I test this capability.

The books I've put there are:

I'm not expecting anyone will be interested in the old book on Data Protector 8 (you should buy one of the v9 books instead as it will be almost entirely applicable). Also, I haven't heard of any problems for anyone wanting to buy A Better Practices Guide for Populating a CMDB in PDF from Europe, so I haven't put that on the store either. (Let me know if you need it.)

The links to buy for Kindle, on paper or through Distribly are unchanged: http://www.ifost.org.au/books
