      Had to pay $25 customs here in Toronto. As per this document http://www.parallella.org/wp-content/uploads/ParallellaQuickStartGuide_rev3.pdf there should two heat sinks in the package one for zynq and one for ephiphany. But there is only one heat sink in the package i received. Can any one confirm how many should be in the package?

      Paid the customs fee at the weekend, package has been passed from DHL GlobalMail into the care of Yodel in the UK - so might have it next week, fingers crossed.

      #1580 - Boards are received in Europe.
      Packing is absolutely correct, board looks nice, lets power on :)

      @blais/@harris Thanks! Great to hear that Canada shipping worked out.

      @julien @gareth: Really sorry to hear about the DHL issues. The feedback so far seems to have been mixed, but clearly your experience are upsetting.

      @savage Great to hear that Parallella is circling the globe!

      @trick1..and everyone else Thanks for tellins us (and everyone) that the boards are starting to arrive!

      took 5 days to ship in Canada, no customs or duties. #5169
      the board looks really well made and is nice looking!

      @Gareth Nelson: my experience with DHL easily put them in the depth of the ocean way below standard mail shipping, last time they just dropped the package at some relay point without asking and there was someone home but they never even rang the bell...

    7. Frederick Blais on

      Backer #5169 just received a shipping notice!

    8. Tim Savage on

      Received mine today in Sydney Australia. Will have to wait till I get home to power it up.

    9. David Harris on

      Just now received mine in west coast Canada, wee! #2891 Board and accessory pack. No customs or duties paid :-) I haven;t powered it up, as yet.

      Did any one receive in Canada? If so, what customs duty fee is charged?

    11. Gareth Nelson on

      Just a quick note about DHL - they're currently threatening me with debt collectors for the import duty on my boards as they appear to charge you weeks later, got a letter this morning threatening me (despite never getting an original invoice).

      Be on the lookout people.

      I just got mine, but I don't have the time for another hobby project, so I've put her up for sale if any of you want another:

      I just received shipping notice for #2891. I'm in Canada. My response to the survey was 11/4/2012. USPS doesn't show the tracking, yet. Pledge was one board and accessory kit.

      Zachary on

      Double checked, definitely backer #2810, thought they were going to be shipped out by backer#? Not that I'm personally complaining! Received the boards today. :) I will note that I didn't receive the tracking email until 2 days after USPS says the package was shipped, so maybe there's an issue with getting the tracking emails out. Also, on the out chance that it helps figure anything out, I pledged at the 2 board level and currently hang my hat in Pennsylvania.

    27. Jay on

      Both Oneill #1,580 and I #1,956 are on the Parallella Community Forum saying that we haven't got our shipping notification yet. I filled out my survey on 7th November 2012. I'm an international backer - not sure if that makes a difference.

    28. Tom Potts on

      @david - my response is there. I'm in the UK I dont know if that makes a difference...

      I'm backer 2385, and I got my shipping notice yesterday (4/19).

    30. David Harris on

      @Tom -- It should show at the bottom of your pledge group to the right of this page. And a link that says "Your response" If you have done, then I am not sure why Zachary at #2810 has an email, and you don't at a lower backer number. Perhaps Zachary made a typo? I am getting close. I expect we won't see any more action until after this long Easter weekend.

    31. Tom Potts on

      David - if that was oct 13 then yes.

    32. Tom Potts on

      When would that have been?

    33. David Harris on

      @Tom --- Did you fill out your survey?

    34. Tom Potts on

      I'm 2512 but not heard anything yet...

    35. Bryant Bair on

      @Zachary, gives me hope that I will receive mine before I move in 3 weeks and don't have an address for 30 days :) I'm 3762...

      I got my shipping notice and tracking today. I'm #1512.

    40. David Harris on

      Yes, time for an update!! What backer number are we up to?

    41. J David Eisenberg on

      Still haven't received any word about shipment of any sort. I note that the "final push" update gave month and day -- but not the year.

      Congrats for being a finalist in the ACE Awards in the Open Source Harware Platform category! (See http://ubm-ace.com/finalists.php )

      Does the board come with CEC via HDMI?

      yeah, I need to update my address, how do I do that?

      Great news! It's become clear from many other Kickstarter projects that the scheduling, logistics, and shipping are often harder than implementing the idea.

      Any news is better than no news. I think it's time we got another update, Adapteva.

      Is it possible to change my shipping address? I've moved since originally backing this project. Backer # 1397

    49. Jay on

      I remember back in update #42 there was a promise of weekly shipping updates - that is maybe a bit too much but it has been a month and it would be good to know where we are in the queue and a projected date - I'm backer #1,956.
