January 9 Update Discussion


Recommended Posts

 

I'm just wishing for a release from customs today or tomorrow!  please please please please... :wub:

It would seem that early Customs release is more beneficial than fulfillment sequence.

 

For sequence, if a thousand or more orders are filled in a day, then being last in any given wave only put you behind a day or two from the first person in the same wave. Customs, on the other hand, could save EVERYONE multiple days.

 

Very Wise.  Yes, in fact, your specific order within the Wave will matter very little, especially given that since the USPS and UPS each pick up once daily, whether you shipped at 9AM or 5:59PM the end result is the same - your box physically left the building at 6PM. The Customs date will be far more impactful than whether you are 3rd in "line" for your wave or 2,000th in "line".

 

 

Factorio looks very interesting.

 

 

Who thinks we'll hear some news before Friday's update? Or will Friday arrive with a "holding pattern" update? 

 

If the container is released from customs between now and Wednesday, I would not be surprised if Bryan updated us soon after he was notified. If it's released Thursday, I would expect him to wait until Friday to update. However, if it's not released, there isn't much other than "holding pattern" to update with.

 

If it is delivered today or tomorrow, I am most likely to simply include that information in Friday's Update, and not issue a separate update for it.  I am just about to head to a morning meeting to learn what news (if any) came into existence since I left for PAX South last Wednesday. Remember: Customs is notorious for saying nothing until they call us to say "you have 24 hours to pick up your Container". I am unaware of ever getting more notice than that.

(trying not to think about bones, trying not to think about bones, why oh why do I have a light schedule this afternoon so I have time to sit around and... no no, bad Corporea, still not thinking about bones...)

 

I think I'll paint the Brass Bull up first for the auction unless anyone has requests.

And in today's weird but true stories, officials at the Dallas Customs facility reported a bizarre attack by a group of mostly out of shape men & women led by a little orange creature chanting "Bones! Bones! We wantz our Bones!" just before carrying off three full containers full of them.

 

Customs officials still haven't explained why three cargo containers full of remains were allowed to be imported from China, but both human and animal rights activists are very concerned...

We can make requests?

I'm trying not to think about this at all.  Failing miserably.

I was doing fine at not thinking about it until I swapped out my router a couple of weeks back and lost the working hours block to reapermini.com I had in my old router. (Un)fortunately, my new router doesn't have that feature.
