Did you know I can foresee the future?
I didn't know myself - but Mae (a user from the German Community) has found out that I actually predicted the volcanic eruption back when I held my presentation about OpenSource handhelds...
Go check it out yourself, it starts at about 4:20:
The lottery numbers for next week are: 3, 17, 23, 35, 45, 49 and 22. Don't bet on it, though!
Okay, now for some real news:
As you probably already found out, there was a volcanic eruption in Iceland which caused chaos to the european air traffic. No flights are currently going to and from UK. As the boards in Dallas were already picked up last week, we hoped that they were already in UK, maybe sitting at the customs, when that all happened.
Well, unfortunately, that was not the case. They didn't go on a direct flight from Dallas to UK, but were routed via some other airport in USA. And that's where they are still waiting for the moment. I guess 1t shipments do not go the same routes a small packages
UPS is currently rerouting their shipments, we don't have an update yet when the boards will arrive, but I'm sure UPS is working as fast as possible to get it all sorted out. The production of the remaining boards is still going on, of course.
Next, onto the cases:
Since the volcanic eruption gave us some more time, we decided to tweak the cases some mor.... naaaah! Just kidding!
The first 1000 cases have been fully produced and will be painted black! Why? Heck, because it's worth it! Just check the following picture:
Left: Unpainted. Right: Black Painted. Bottom: Ash Grey Painted.
Definately looking beautiful. Want more? Well, here you go:
Left: Black Paint. Right: Grey Paint.
I'll let you know as soon a we get more information from UPS on when the shipping will continue. As long as the cases aren't finished painting, we won't have lost any time due to the volcano. Let's just hope it REALLY decides to stop spitting ash into the air and the delivery services will catch up with the lost days soon!
