Default FYI - ice problems in Atlanta

If you placed an order in the past week and had been wondering if things are being delayed, it's because the Atlanta area has been hit by an ice storm. Today was the first day we were able to get the entire crew in to the office, as well as the first day the postal service was able to get a delivery truck to our shop. We should be caught up on orders by the end of the week. Sorry about the delay.

25 DIYPNPs will pull a premium when there's an ice storm in Atlanta and it's the week before race wars.

In reality, I'm not sure if any part of the kit originates from Japan... well I guess maybe some of the chips, as they have to be sourced globaly. But nearly everything in the DIYPNP is made in the USA.

I placed an order this week. I have a great idea too. As a "sorry for the delay" apply that MERRYCHRISTMAS discount to this poor small businessman's order since I was asleep at the wheel when that sale happened!!!

Sing along to the tune of happy birthday...

Merry Christmas to me
