I work closely with the USPS. What looks like TopSpin chose to use is the Delivery Confirmation (read: cheapest) service and the service does just that. It's not meant to provide tracking details. So, the USPS doesn't "suck", at least not for this reason anyway. TopSpin could have sent these Certified Priority Mail for $8.65... the packages would have a real tracking number and would have likely been delivered within 3 days.

I finally received my copy today, it looks great. I am glad I didnt' get a crappy signature like some others I have seen.

I tweeted Ally what number he got. #1170/3000
05-12-2012, 08:27 PM
I FINALLY got mine. Number 850/3000.
It is marvelous. Worth the wait and frustrations.
05-12-2012, 08:43 PM
Finally arrived as well. Stoked for the low number and amazed at the overall package.

Anyone living in MA who had theirs shipped via USPS get theirs yet? I am getting really fucking antsy over here.

Received my GWTDT limited edition, yesterday. Coupled with receiving my NIN drive, the day before, it's been a great week for this NIN fan. By the way, cool how the cardboard shipping box has the GWDT logo on it.

Same here. Hmmm. I wonder if they're shipping based on geographic region? Who knows. *sigh* Oh well. It'll arrive sooner or later.

I live in Indiana, and I still have yet to receive my copy either. Kind of pissed how this shipping fiasco has worked out, but I've recently stocked up on some classic records I've been meaning to get so I suppose this will get here when it gets here :/

I'm inside 128 and got mine last Wednesday. I was also one of the first ones at the cash register, maybe they're going out by order placed. or not.

Mailman came by. Another day without my deluxe edition. This is really beginning to piss me off.

Still waiting here in Northern Ireland too, according to my live receipt it should have arrived at the latest on Saturday.
05-14-2012, 11:12 AM
Mine finally arrived this morning. #1268
The necklace is heavier than I anticipated.
05-14-2012, 02:25 PM
Got mine today. #862. Also, everyone needs to slow their roll. It's well worth the wait, even though we've been waiting an extra 3-4 months.
05-14-2012, 02:56 PM
i finally got mine today #1169.

It arrived. #1020 OCD is pleased with that number. Glad this ridiculousness is over.

I got my package in the mail today but its not numbered, they completely left the plate off, and its not loose in the box. Don't know how that could have slipped through the cracks. I sent them an email, waiting on a response now. No problems with the USB drive at least.
05-14-2012, 06:57 PM
you know, that might be worth more money.

I did think of that actually :-) Maybe they will get back to me and say that its a "special edition" of the deluxe package

Finally got mine on a rainy day no less and the mailman left it sitting out in the rain. The shipping box got a little wet, and I got pretty angry upon seeing that what I waited months for was left out in the rain but luckily nothing happened to the contents or else I would have killed someone.

nothing nothing nothing.

Let me tell you this.
I was one of the first who ordered two boxes by using the US site (because the UK site made shit at that time). Well, still nothing seen.
Last week may 8th I ordered an extra one using the UK site, and what do I see today? I received the box, it's #1431. It was sent with DHL.

Holy shit, the USPS tracking updated saying it got processed through the sorting facility in Philly today. I had it sent to my parents' house cause I didn't want it getting left at my apartment while I'm at work, now I'm wishing I just had it sent to my place since it would probably arrive here tomorrow. Oh well, just glad I know where it's at and there's an end in sight to this debacle.
05-15-2012, 11:04 AM
So did mine. About time, I was getting very frustrated.
05-15-2012, 11:32 AM
Had it delivered at work. #0437. Some slight dings to the outer cardboard box, but that's the only flaw I can see. The razor blade necklace/usb is perfect and I kinda wish they'd sell it separately. Looking forward to exploring the book tonight. It's an amazing package!

i am using win 7 for those curious... anyway i have emailed Topspin but was hoping someone here could help with it instead seeing Topspin's track record

Stupid question, but are you putting in correctly? Since there is no shield around the contacts, it is possible to put it in upside down.
