Tape arrived safe and (mostly) sound here in Austin!
(I'm not sure if the cracks in the case were from the launch.)
Thanks!

Can you send me details on the damage?!

I tried to package them as well as I could given the size restrictions (20 mm). Even though the launch may appear violent to the casual observer, the extended barrel and especially tuned long-burn propellants prevent any intense surges in acceleration I can assure you.

Perhaps I need to reassess the design of my shipping container. = /

I give a moment of silence to those injured on route.

Updated first post with shipping times based on the feedback. Record low is Sweden at 4 days, and the high was US and UK at 7 and 8 days (one each for both).

Yesterday at the TOGA meeting I showed the members the tape, and many were interested. At today's FCUG meeting, the tape was ceremoniously take out of its cellophaned box, and it ran perfectly.

Greetings from the Lakehead, long time lurker here … :)

Just wanted to say thanks for the Canadian Tire game pack. The package arrived in a very safe, nonviolent fashion last Friday … it took me most of the weekend to unwrap the thing, but all is intact!

I had all these games as a kid on a dubbed cassette, so it’s nice to have the original.

I’m setting up my Vic 20 next week, so I’ll give the games a good go …

My setup should coincide with the arrival of a new joystick (well, new to me that is) so I’m pretty pumped about that as well.

Thanks again!

Canadian post missile landed today in IOM.

I had to laugh with the parcel may be opened by customs sticker - fat chance against the Canada tape, nylon reinforced tape and then the foam and card.

I don't want to to open it - has anyone dumped it yet to a zip I could download?
