      CHILL OUT!! but thanks for the update - I'm sure you will deliver a quality product as soon as you can. . . Happy holidays and New Year.

      Don't know about others, but for me being on time for X-mas is not a requirement at all, not sure why everyone is trying to do it in time for holidays... well, maybe if that's for gifts, but even then, I'm not funding things to get them exactly on time - anyway holiday rush is just stupid and you shouldn't worry! ;)

      is always good to have a great device later instead of having a so so device earlier...we always will remember having a great device to play with not the date it was delivered...

      Xmas for sure this year with this successfully project is going to be something special for all of you heheheh!

      No prob, flippers! Scaling up this project must have been an INCREDIBLE challenge and you're doing it with professionalism and grace. Thanks for your work and beautiful updates.....and please, take at least a day or two off over Christmas/New Year season to forget about flipbookit and relax.

      P.S. Do you see flipping images on your eyelids when you're falling asleep?

      in an era where the public is constantly lied to by politicians, executives, and even the clergy, it is gratifying to be dealt with honestly and with respect. i hope the pressure doesn't ruin your holidays. it's only a toy.

      No worries team, it happens. Given this setback, is there any way we can change the delivery address? That would be massively helpful in still getting these gifts to their intended recipients. Can it be updated?

      Since the majority of my backed project eventually issue similiar updates as yours, I'm inured to such will get here, when it gets here....

      Unlucky guys, looks like you tried to make this happen. You're in good company - all my Xmas 2012 KS projects have now slipped into 2013, lol.

      I can just as easily give this to my beloved on his birthday, rather than on Xmas. All is good, knowing there is a Flipbook in our future :)

      Your updates are honest and straight up. I have every confidence. Keep up the excellent work you guys. Maybe the mayan calendar was predicting this flipbookit glitch rather than the end of the world...

      Thanks for keeping us up-to-date. I hope it arrives in time for some pagan spring awakening fest, with rivers of delicious juices flowing from the summits of ambrosia-topped mountains.

      Besides that, the gift card download links don't seem to work...

    13. Dan Evans on

      It's a Hurculean task. Christmas will come and go, and we'll all still be just as excited to get our hands on these! Keep up the amazing work, and thanks for sharing it with us.

      Hey team - I know you must be feeling really disappointed and frustrated. But thank you SO much for your work and updates. We will all get our goodies when we get them... and while some may be disappointed, I, for one, am deeply appreciative of the risk you took to even get this thing going. Don't let it get you down. Think of it this way: now many of us will be having a second holiday whenever it is these DO arrive! I will be using this as an excuse to take a weekend off to play once they do arrive, and I always need more of those. Thank you again, and please take some time for yourselves, family, and friends in the coming weeks. Oh - and BREATHE. Pat yourselves on the back. You're doing great things!

      I'm sorry to hear about the delay - but appreciate that you are trying to get it right for something so unique. Your timing with the update is impeccable! Thank you for the update.
