I bought one of these ex-Tuxbrain cases. It fits really nice and is of
the best quality compared with other stuff I have seen in the market;

it has two problems, though:

the belt clip is nonsense; it does not fit in belts and you can very
easy loose your beloved FR+case :-( 
It can be removed easy, and I went here to a leather worker and he
attached a loop for a belt; I could put a picture on my server if there
is some interest; it took me, of course, 20 euro in addition, but this
money is good invested, already due to the fact that the Euro tomorrow is
only just another piece of metall :-)

Second problem, the leather should be more strong, especially in the
rounded corners; after using it 3 months in daily business and travel it
shows already some cracks which I don't know at the moment how to deal

yes, I do not worry, but please do not use the words "Dear remaining OM
community"; it sounds like in church when someone passed away :-)

Thanks for all your long term support, Christoph!
