It is nice to open my mail to see some of you have gotten your Opi. Oh I am so happy. I know there are some still waiting and everyone is excited. So just try to patient and it will get there before you know it. One customer just wrote about receiving his-- that is was well worth the weight, err, wait. (Thanks Sam)
Russia & Ukraine delivery updates: As mentioned yesterday, the MJ Opus' are in route to you in Russia and Ukraine. They should arrive Monday/Tuesday, and then go through processing with Customs, etc. So, just plan on next Friday, and then if it gets there beforehand, you'll be that much happier. The longest of the wait is over. Here is a copy of an email sent to some of the customers in Russia last night. Don't worry if you didn't get it-- the IT department was gone by the time it was sent, so there wasn't a way for Andy to get the full list-- but it is coming. PROMISE!
I am aware that shipping to Russia has been a massive problem and a very frustrating experience for you. As you are aware our first attempt to deliver failed due to serious problems with customs. We have addressed this and sent your order out to you again at the start of this week.
This evening, having checked the progress of your order I noticed that there appears to be little update from Fedex on a number of deliveries to Russia. Unfortunately due to the time here in the UK I have been unable to follow up with FedEx to try and ascertain a status update on your shipment. You have been sent your tracking number and I am confident that I will have this issue sorted on Monday next week and updates to your delivery will appear on the FedEx website.
In the meantime I would like to apologise for this problem and assure you that your Opus will be delivered next week.
As soon as I am able to get an update from FedEx on Monday I will send this through to you.
Translation booklets: While I do not have any official answer on this topic, well, sorta, I would say to those who are waiting for the booklet that was advertised being translated into one of 12 languages-- Don't hold your breath. I don't get the impression these were actually done or printed. So those asking about them, Sorry!
Nate Giorgio "apology" prints: (Taiwan, Japan, Netherlands, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand) No update on these at the moment.
OR Cards: Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want one mailed OR you can print the trigger image directly from your computer. (See the email that was sent to you back in January from Kraken Opus with passcode to Opus owners). No further update at this time about the content for Opus Augmented Reality webpage. Last checked, still showing "hold page". Awaiting update from Karl on this.
Have a GOOD weekend and everyone just hang on a few more days. Ok?
