Arghh, let me post something not so worthless ...

Fitchie, maybe it's a good idea you start a building thread?! So we can keep all the real stuff separate from all this pre-ejaculate?!

Awesome work on the website Fitchie on top of everything else. This is probably the most meticulously planned and professionally executed project I've ever seen, thanks for doing all of it :hail:

are packages going out in geographical groupings rather than list order? #2 on list but in the US.

  • A small explanation about shipping:

    - Parcels for Europe are processed by DPD, first in, first served.
    - Parcels for US & Canada will be soon processed by BPost, also first in, first served.

    Unfortunately I am still waiting for a signed contract with BPost, as this agreement is legally required to carry out customs formalities, prior to shipping to US & Canada.

    My main intention was to keep shipping costs down, you should know that the package weighs 6 kgs.
    That's why 2 different suppliers are used to serve the different geographical locations.

I sent this guy some money for 3080s a month ago and never heard back despite multiple messages. Buyer beware.

A nice big parcel arrived for me on Monday.
Looks brilliant. Just need to clear some desk space to get properly stuck into it!
Such a good idea to do this, and I can't be thankful enough for the ridiculous amount of effort that must have gone into this!

As recently promised:
Deliveries for the United States and Canada will be shipped tomorrow !

All packages are ready to send out. Let's hope that the strike at Bpost will not last too long.

Yeah I am not sure what the deal is, I PM'd him about the 3080's which he did reply. But then I replied back stating I wanted to buy a set from him and haven't heard back. I did check his profile and it shows he hasn't been on the forums since the 20th of October. So maybe something came up. Not making excuses but it's possible he had some important things come about.

I think I have enough 3080's somewhere in my closet but if not I'll probably be ordering from smallbear.

Sorry guys for this double post, but I absolutely want to avoid you ordering wrong connectors.

  • DO NOT ORDER THESE CONNECTORS !

    Take care not to order the L (solder lugs) version, they will not fit in the backplane !
    Please see below specifications before ordering.

  • Neither Switzerland nor Norway are part of the European Economic Community.
    Shipping to these countries as well to the United States and Canada requires customs formalities. DPD does not offer this service in Belgium.

    Therefore your parcel was shipped today by BPost together with those for the United States and Canada.

Is it BPost directly or you who will be providing tracking info?

Just worried that it may have been in my spam folder when I cleared it out this morning.

Also BPost provides tracking info (unsure but I think the shipment is issued by GLS for international deliveries).
Don't underestimate Belgium, we are small but tough!
:tu:

Have to go to my work now, but I'll send your tracking codes tonight by private message.

So then my question morphs: BPost has the arrangement and the materials, I assume they are going through the list top to bottom, and that they are going to take a few days to get it all out?

All of which is fine, but I'm still worried I may have deleted something important. If my interpretation is correct, I am not so worried about that.

I also sent money for a batch of CA3080s several weeks ago, making payment, rather foolishly with the benefit if hindsight, by Friends & Family...

Nothing received, and no response to PMs or emails.

Anyone have any idea what is going on with seanpark??
