One-Day Delay! Of Course! —

From my printer:

Hey Jason – It looks like the Disc 1’s had some `stamper’ issues and have now been re-scheduled to ship 5/19 – which means you would receive your 500 then on 5/20.

As I’m sure [has been] discussed with you, DVD-9’s are a more difficult product to manufacture than DVD-5s, and with the QA process at ISO certified plants, if something is off spec, they have to address it. In this case, the stamper that were created failed and new ones are required.

We will keep you posted.

So there we go, a one-day delay. Meanwhile, the dining room is now set up like a war room, with all the stuff ready to go, just waiting for The Word.

  1. Dearest Jason,

    This is the way things go!

    Cheers, and I congratulate you on all your achievements. I hope that we are able to bring you to Mexico to talk to us probably the next free software congress!

    Look at it this way. The experience waiting for this documentary is like patiently waiting for a large file to download on a 300 baud modem. Once you finally got the file (sometimes having to re-download because someone picked up the phone and disconnected you), didn’t you cherish it so much?

    It’d just be our luck if a tornado rips through the factory. But, hey, I’m not negative. 🙂

    Keep up the great work!
