    Not related to this thread at all, but the express shipping from TF Safari left China on the 4th and got to Chicago on the 7th. Absolutely insane. It cleared customs about 2 days ago. I’m hoping that the tracking hasn’t updated, and it could be out for delivery today.

    why boat slow :(

    UGH STILL on its way to USPS. I'm guessing that it hit California right about when everything was shut down and the customs officers are only back in the last few weeks. At this rate I'll get MMC Helex, my other big purchase, from TFSource first. My wife wants one of them to come before my birthday in 3 weeks, and that's looking less likely!

    im in Middleton, Wi. It’s at O’hare still. I googled Elmwood and see Illinois and Wisconsin villages. Either way, they’re both 2 hours from me.

    I had something similar happen to me earlier (not with Cell). I filed a claim, and it turned out that package had been misplaced but found, and the postal director for the area actually took my parcel personally and delivered it to me. Was actually pretty cool of him.

    I got impatient and asked ShowZ to look into it. Wasn't sure if USPS could help me or not, without having an "actual USPS" tracking number and all.
    I may try and call to find out.

    I know it happens all the time, hell, it has happened to me before... But THIS wait FEELS different.
    Like everyone else, I've been waiting for this thing, not for 10 days, but since Sept. 11, 2019 when I placed my Pre-Order.
    This IS my Holy Grail!

    It'll come! Each stop it made was a few to several days including Monroe. Hang in there!

    ShowZ gave like three different tracking services and only one number gives me a result on USPS's site. It's weird.

    Ah. That’s legit. Going bot to planet is a lot harder to do at arms length, because the more you ball it up the more support it needs to get the last bits done, so I generally have it in my lap. Going the other way you can get it into a more secure form early on so it’s easier to do from further away (like behind a camera). If I can think of a good way to shoot the opposite direction I’ll do a video

    Perhaps a thread can be started that lists Reviewers with their forum names (unless one already exists that I don't know of).
    That would be quite handy. Only in these last few pages have I discovered who a couple of them actually are.

    Or whoever runs the forum could find a way of allowing people to change their name. It's 2020... should be possible.
    Video Reviewers (and similar contributors) are pretty important in this community and should be allowed such a privilege.

    :cool:

    How do you get the ring pieces to clip together so completely on the top and bottom? Can't for the life of me get them to look that clean...
