Message to Gus

Gus!  Lucy is going to hold the ball again, in 30 minutes!  Get ready to kick!

Update:  The above message was highly coded with MS-grade encryption.  I got a message that the Canadian store would open for N4 orders exactly 4 minutes ago.

Update2:  I just ordered 1 16 gb n4, delivery in 2 weeks, cart crashed.

Update3:  So neat!  As my cart stagnates, the delivery time goes up!

Update4:  16 gb model ordered, who knows when?

Summary:  I had signed up for the 'Notify Me' a long time ago.  After much bitching on my blog, they were nice enough to actually notify me that it was going for sale at 3pm eastern.  Of course, I believe this was all for me!  I used the Chrome page alert extension, and had a nice chime ready.  At 3:03, the chime sounded, the fish was on the hook!  With fumbling fingers I refreshed the page, and found only the 16 model and a limit of 1!  As I was fumbling it said 1-2 weeks.  I got to the cart, and it said it was stuck due to high volume.  As I watched, the delivery time switched to 3-4 weeks.  I kept hitting that damn Proceed button, and finally got through.  Now, it is dead.  Poor you!

I couldn't event try! The football was in another field. I had the notification and my brother tried for one and he's sitting at 7-8 Weeks!

I'm still happily rolling along with my rooted Nexus S from the days when nobody cared about Nexus devices. I think the wife has bought me a Note II to replace the aging hardware and my table needs. We'll see...
