SHS`, I placed my order for Bertie on June 16, it's now 4 weeks after.

Just curious about it, (since I read that there are 'single digits' left) and I reaaally want to make sure I get in on the Bertie action :)

trans id: 587513238H654764T

going to Buffalo, NY USA

Any word, update, info? Is there a tracking # you can e-mail to my paypal? I'll buy another if I have to :)

Bertie might be being interrogated by Homeland Security as he was sent at the same time as one to Australia, which I know has definitely arrived. All I can suggest for now is to check with your postal services (Bertie went via regular mail) to see if they've attempted to deliver him to you?

He won't be classed as "delayed" by UK's Royal Mail till the end of this month, and there is still a good chance he can show up... so just hang tight, and if he does/doesn't show up between now and the end of the month. Let me know either way, so I can start prodding my end if I need to. :)

Bertie is hard at work as a moderator for MidnightBox.com. I'll be taking a vacation in the meantime ;)

Many thanks to all of the developers hard at work on phpBB3. I'm really excited to know that one of my ideas made it in. (The Moderator Queue; I built the original 'Approve Mod' for phpBB2.)

Keep up the good work! I'll post more of Bertie's adventures as they happen.

Ah... he got sent surface, that's why he took so long. ;) I still swear Bertie is stashing vodka with him on his journeys whilst I'm not looking as he always seem to come out the box looking drunk. :P

Doh. :P As for will there be a 3rd edition? The chances are low as it's more of a logistics thing (I doubt I'll be anywhere near Europe) for when a 3rd edition might be required. :)
