      Hey anyone who has received their stuff, please post links to pictures here as well. I don't have access to COTI (yet) so I can't see the pictures. I want to see pictures! :)

      I'm patient!
      I knew I would have to...
      but again updates are free and even a one liner would be nice!

      I don't mean any updates to pressure or waste precious time from Mark!

      But a short line with a quick pic... from Hey look guys.. we prepared these... those will look like this...

      Here another pic of the monkeys at work...

      etc.

      Éli,

      I am not worried but I can understand peoples frustration. I am betting anyone contacted and/or receiving their books are not rushing here to tell us. A lack of communication or indication of progress just enhances that feeling. I understand I was a last minute pledger and went to book only level means I am probably last, but I would love to know something to effect of we have completed x% or averaging about X a day and expect to be done in Y days. Something specific to look forward to helps to sooth the frustation held by myself and others, espicially when a previous expectation has been set and that date has come and gone.

      I assume it is taking longer than anticipated to make sure everything is going out perfectly, we will no doubt get our e-mails in the next week and packages after that.... :-)

      I really wouldn't worry about it to much. The prospect of being able to ship 2000+ packages in the span of 7 days was pretty ambitious. Add on to that trying to confirm addresses at the same time I would say it was virtually unattainable. I have waited this long, my books will be in my hands shortly.

      Woohoo, best news this month!

      Folks, realize that it's probably just a couple of people working on this, and to a quick eyeball of the list, it looks like he's got about 1,500 packages to box up and mail. Even if he can ship 200 packages a day (25 an hour, or just a couple of minutes per box), it would take him a couple of weeks to get them all out the door.

      That is a LOT of work to do, and he may have a regular job, too.

      Thanks, Marc!

      Just to be clear, you will be shipping 24 hours from now? Today is March 26th, in Australia, which means it is at the earliest March 25th elsewhere. I'm happy to be getting the package... just curious whether KickStarter delayed this message or ir I'm understanding it wrong.
