awesome banksy swag!
and lol at "holy tits" ubuntu box, thats too cool of lurker!
I got a $500 gift card to Incredible Universe. Thanks whoever it was.
My SS should have received theirs yesterday. Damn USPS. Still tracking it...
The one coming to me should be delivered by next Friday. Bbsmitz shows delivered, just waiting for confirmation that he received it.
I'll check the status of the other two when I'm back at a computer tonight.
I thought they all went out of business or got bought up by Fry's? also 500 bucks?!? nice!
Haha, yea, it was a joke. I didn't do ss this year.
I got a cowl (a go around the neck and keep it warm thing) hand knit by Sparky's girlfriend, and a few neat black and white prints of photos that he took. Thanks, Sparky! And Merry Christmas to you and to everyone here.
Here's what I've got... Let me know if these have changed!
BBSmitz - Shows delivered, still waiting for him to confirm receipt
BigWill - Overstock superfail, and they've reshipped it (maybe he'll get two??!?!)
Scrubbin - The confirmation number shows "Expected Delivery" by 12/23 but not confirmed delivery... did you get it?
Czechrboard Tassia - Supposedly in the mail to be delivered by Friday, but I haven't gotten a confirmation number yet.
How many of those are USPS? We should ban that carrier next year. Fuck that shit.
Scrubbin's is USPS, Will's is an overstock error. BBSmitz's was confirmed "delivered" at least two wks ago, but I can't get him to respond if he received it or not. And mine was a procrastinator
I am still waiting patiently. I trust in my SS and have no question that they have done everything they can do to get me my gift. I am not angry or disappointed in the very least. Shit happens.
Right, oh lord I'm a procrastinator, but in any case I got...
courtesy of Tass, which is pretty awesome because there is no sun in san francisco from november to march and I will no doubt become depressed from lack of sunlight. Now I just need to clean off my desk...
Edit: I just realized its completely unclear from above, but it's a sunlight lamp! Instead of some weird yellow light it produces white light that mimics daylight.
Overstock is actually placing the blame on USPS - go figure. What pissed me off is that they made me wait 1-4 business days to "track the lost shipment" and didn't reship until the 23rd (10 days PAST the estimated time of arrival...). In my line of work we do automatic reships when item hasn't arrived by the ETA.
This is what USPS says about the reship:
Service(s): Delivery Confirmation™
Status: Shipment Accepted
Your shipment was accepted/picked up at 4:45 pm on December 28, 2010 in NORFOLK, VA 23501 .

Being a Sanfranciscan was the deciding factor in what to get you, you left no hints in the SS interests thread. Glad you can use it and that you actually got it, it was delivered in NY three weeks ago.
Still haven't received it... Maybe USPS has messed up again? I dunno... I did an official change of address, and definitely know they didn't deliver it to the house.... I realize this is 100% not Succubus's fault, and I hold her in no way responsible. She is doing her best to get it to me as soon as possible. I'm not upset, just anxious to get my gift!
I recieved mine!
Now I can take these off my Amazon Wish List (oddly enough, my parents got me something off there too without even knowing about it.)
Aside from the USPS mess-up that will be solved by Succubus, I'm sure, do we have deadbeats finally?
No deadbeats!!! The only one left is Will's.
Good job everyone.
Thanks for hosting again Tassia.
