    Hmmm, wonder if Fed Ex is getting bad about keeping their updates set up again. That's slightly annoying. Mine is still listed as the freight tag prepared but no motion yet. Guess I shouldn't expect it too much on Monday unless I see some real progress over the weekend (or at least starting to move around the country tomorrow).

    I work for a local Social Housing company (we used to be part of the local government, but went private a few years ago). Only lowly admin though - which is fine with me, as Im quite possibly the least career-minded person I know lol

    Still in AK, and estimated delivery time is in an hour and a half. That's a pretty fast Fed-Ex truck!

    Mine is still in Anchorage AK as well. I finally called Fed Ex and got a human. He did further checking and said it is stuck waiting for Customs release and I should not look for it before Monday. Probably waiting for the xxxx sniffing dogs to finish breakfast. LOL

    Mine is finally moving. Showing it has left China. I would imagine it's travelling by air at least until stateside, probably farther. There's the off chance it can make it by Monday travelling over the weekend, but I figure I'll count more on the middle of the week.

    I wonder if yours might be held up in customs? It's not unusual for customs to stop random shipments to check and you could possibly be stuck in that. Worst case scenario, do like I do. Call Fed Ex and start terrorizing them over the phone. :D

    Heh, I see I was right on the customs guess. So now you're just at the mercy of government efficiency. We may say our iPads sometime next year. LOL

    Gotcha. I was just curious when I saw housing expo since I'm an architect (albeit nearly starving one) in Atlanta, Georgia.

    I would think after customs saw 3 million of these in 80 days all from the same supplier, they might get tired of looking at them......

    Or the ones doing the searches are pissed that they aren't getting one and are taking it out on the rest of us that are.
