No need to appologise. You are convalescing from a disease, afterall.

来ている━━━(゚∀゚)━━━ッ!!
I received my shipping notice last night for Scarlett; now all I have to do is check EMS tracking hourly to take note of every change in transit.

That sounds truly horrible. You have my sympathies, and if it makes you feel better, while the US Postal Service takes sadistic pleasure in squashing packages.

Hey, the USPS isn't that bad, so far, my imports have been fine, and they all come in through JFK in NYC!

I guess I win the Scarlett race:



And yes, as I know everyone is desperate for any information about this, I can confirm that with some help from wine it does indeed work in Linux. ;)

Now, let's get back to playing...

Sweet, glad to see it's in someone's hands! Looks like the first print comes with a decent amount of goodies, too. I can hardly wait!

Well, maybe YOU'RE jaded by updates every eight hours or so, but I am rivited to my seat in fascination every time I see an item go from "En route" to "Dispatch from outward office of exchange."

But actually, despite how banal it sounds, I really try and keep track of the date it's set to arrive here so I can arrainge to be home to sign for the package. It's pretty inconvenient having to head down to the post office and pick the thing up if I miss the postman, and I'd just rather not bother with it. Besides, there's a greater chance of squashing if I let them take it back!

All the USPS bashing...
Have you ever seen what UPS does?

What, they deliver it to your door? ParcelForce drivers aren't allowed to take cash on delivery any more due to security concerns, so I have to drive 20 miles to the local depot to pay the customs charges (and the $25 "handling fee" they tack on for their own pockets)...

I generally find a stiff brandy helps even more.

BTW, what's in the tin?

That's a good question. The front says "ねこのおでん屋、おでんちゃん", which had me thinking it was cat food. =) On side it says "品名:おでん(野菜スープ味)ドライパック" and lists a bunch of ingredients including こんにゃく、黒はんぺん、ちくわ、スジ(練り製品)、豚モツ、昆布、うずら卵、ミネラルウォーター、海洋深層水、野菜スープ, and after that I still have no clue what it actually is. The fact that it contains both deep sea water and mineral water has me wondering how much of a "ドライパック" it really is. I have not dared open it yet lest I feel forced to actually eat it.

I'm not sure if it's supposed to be included in the pre-order campaign or if AsoBitCity where I bought my copy threw it in. I actually hadn't pre-ordered so I guess I was lucky they still had some of the pre-order stuff left when I got there.
