As of today I'm fully caught up with all the book orders! I just have to take the last half-dozen to the PO in the morning and get them fired off, and I'll be 100% caught up.

I do have to apologize to many of you for the additional wait, but I've really done very little else other than print, sketch, wrap, box and ship for the past full week.

Not that I'm complaining (okay, not too much complaining ) but I've made like 15 or 16 trips to the PO, gone through six full rolls of packaging tape, wore out two brand-new Micron pens, and spent a collective three hours standing at the counter while the poor lady enters all the customs information for each one of the overseas orders.

Thank you all very much, especially for the patience of those of you who were already waiting on shop work from me before I launched this mess. As I said before, the last thing I needed was another project like this, but after Print Guy screwed me over for the seventh year in a row, I was pissed off and on a mission.

I of course still have books in stock, and barring the occasional brief outage they will remain in stock from here on out.

Doc.

The package shall fly across the ocean on Elon's rocket, then crawl towards me by horse, sheep, legless donkey or snail.

...in Australia, our postal service has a stylized letter P for its logo - and as soon as it came out, it was pointed out that it looks like a large, red snail, balancing vertically on its nose...

which reminded the population of the tardiness of the organization every time they dropped a letter in the corner mailbox.

Is there anyway to get a tracking number for the parcel?

I never thought I'd see a snail doing a stoppie.

You folks Down Under have some strange wildlife indeed. But it sounds like your bureacrats are the same as every other nation's.
If it ain't broke, I'll fix it!

And arrived. The snail was a bit quicker than expected.

And the books are excellent.

Thanks Doc!!!

Doc: "Hey! I'm done sending out book orders!"
Me: "Just wait a week until I get paid, you'll have another." ;)
