$79 backers are shipping
I've now shipped all the (99) Oz $79 backers (you should have got a tracking email), and have started shipping the overseas $79 backers in backer order. So if you backed early, yours will be sent first. 100 units will ship this morning, with hopefully another 100 later today, and so forth over the coming days in batches of 100 (manageable from a database and handling/delivery perspective) as more units arrive from the assemblers.
Note that there is no tracking available on international shipments.
For those interested, there was 1% failure rate at testing at the assemblers, which is not entirely unexpected as that is why they are tested to spec, because in theory I would expect some units to be outside spec.
Here is the EEVblog shipping department in full fury:

Some of the many errors I get when importing the (already processed) database into eParcel. It's very picky about all sorts of things and I have to fix each error manually. This is why mailing houses charge a "database setup" fee to import your excel file into their shipping system.
