On the one hand (and by far the dominant one), very cool that they're getting a bunch of orders out.

 

On the other hand I'd be lying if I didn't say I was a bit disappointed that they seem to have switched entirely away from doing US shipments while they were doing 5 item shipments. Mostly based on the fact that mine is a 6 item (vampire +5) shipment.

 

C'est la vie...

 

I get you. Would I like my order to go out? Of course. But if Reaper can get all the Canadian stuff on one truck, and only have to deal with those headaches once, more power to 'em. With some of the 'vampire + X' reports coming in, my gut instinct says they'll be back on non-Canadian stuff late today or early Monday.

If Canadian orders are going out today, does that leave hope for ROW stuff tomorrow?

I wouldn't be sure about tomorrow (did Bryan suggest 6-day shipping?), but Monday seems likely. Maybe finish out the batch of US labels today (1500 plus Canadians, so that should take them to about 800 orders shipped today), and then switch to a stack of 1500 international.

Now I have real dilemma. Do I continue to watch the counter obsessively or do I play with the brand new Ouya that just arrived?

 

 

Both

 

 

Same screen. :down:

Knowing how careful Reaperbryan usually is with his wording his post from a page or so back leads me to believe that the UPS rep(s) is there today.

Oh I understand, and even agree that it is reasonable. I'm just also a bit selfishly disappointed. :)

I'm just being lazy. I'm lounging around my living room using the HTPC for internet browsing. I could pull out my laptop, tablet or phone to watch the counter but they're all upstairs. Being sick really sucks.

But you are home to play with your Ouya as opposed to working.

Didn't they say that they had a 2nd shift crew working as well? While I'm all for labor rights, I'm kind of hoping they work Saturday to keep the Bones flowing.

 

The Bones must flow!

I'm currently unemployed so I'd be home anyway. Being sick is what's making me not want to move. Honestly, if I were feeling well I'd be trying to finish my craft room before I'm buried in bonesium.

From the Kickstarter comments:

 

We will work Canadian orders all day tody and Monday until finished while our Brokerage Rep is here to oversee and manage. We want no mistakes!

So it looks like there is no work being done on the weekend. Frankly, I'm glad to hear that.

Earlier in this thread they said they considered it, but decided that it was better to have everyone in one shift covering as many lines at once as possible.

1188 was the total for yesterday I think. So if they average 1000 orders per day, with just over 12,000 orders to go, it should take around 12 days to get everything shipped. Round up to two weeks for larger orders and unforseen delays. I think we're in the final stretch now. ::D:
