It’s July 30, and many of us – a suspicious number, really – have the nice round date of September 30 as the Estimated Delivery Date for our filters. Given the lack of a “monthly” “update”, I have a couple of questions for @dan regarding the “impending” shipments:
A few months ago, the heading on the date on the Account page quietly changed from the rather Soviet “Estimated Shipping Notification Date” to the much more straightforward “Estimated Delivery Date”. While this happened about two years after it should have ceased to be relevant to me, allow me to nevertheless applaud the simplification. I would interpret “Estimated Delivery Date” to mean an estimate of the date by which we would receive our delivery. Is that indeed what you mean by it? If not, then what do you mean by it?
If that is what it means, for us on the east coast of the US it seems like you’d have to start shipping crates out in a couple of weeks, no? So is the manufacturing facility a bustling hive of filter-assembling activity? If not, then shouldn’t you be updating the Estimated Delivery Dates?
What I love about that one is that Dan has been saying that he could not possibly tell “customers” what is happening with the equipment that they paid for almost three years ago because that would give away valuable trade secrets, but helpfully describing airflow through the prototype was apparently no problem.
“The vast majority” of pre-order customers ordered a filter. How many people are still waiting on a filter, @dan? How many have canceled?
