WEBSHOP OFFLINE DUE TO UK LOCKDOWN

Post by exxos » Mon Mar 23, 2020 10:31 pm

IMPORTANT INFORMATION.

If you are expecting fast dispatch and delivery via the postal system, then please do no order! Also people don't start bugging me when stuff will arrive as tracking emails are sent out and it just gets very irritating otherwise. If your expecting miracles, then please just don't order!


UPDATE 28/06/2020
Shipping days are currently back to normal. Monday, Tuesday, Friday. Please note, postal services are not great at the best of times, so expect delays on receiving your packing due to postal backlogs.

Also note the new "recover tracking page" is now online viewtopic.php?f=90&t=2896

UPDATE 29/06/2020
Packages to Australia seem to be stuck in a hub in france. From what I can tell the delay looks to be around 3 months.

I would suggest people in Australia do not order until things settle down. Oddly packages actually destined to france seem to still be getting there reasonably quick.

You're doing the right thing. And at least you've got an indoor hobby!

Completely understandable.

It's not as if we don't have other things to tinker with (and break). :)
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...
ZX81->Spectrum->Memotech MTX->Sinclair QL->520STM->BBC Micro->TT030->PCs & Sun Workstations.
Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.
Collection now with added Macs, Amigas, Suns and Acorns.

Thank you to let us know.

We all have to be patient...this is going to last longer than initially expected.

Regards from Barcelona.

Yeah. Its going to keep getting bad for the next couple of weeks I bet. Even then its only the peek of it all. Things will have to calm down after that as well.

I am annoyed myself with taking my store offline as I can understand that people got all this free time now and can't order anything from me.

I am however working on stock slowly in the background. It gives me a bit of time to catch up on stuff. Though I am getting over a cold and not really feeling very motivated currently. Depending how things go, I will likely go stop with my girlfriend until all this blows over. I could do with a break away from Atari stuff anyway. Probably go into hibernation for a few weeks catch up on some sleep :)

I am opening my store from now until Friday about 6pm UK time .. With the intention of posting on saturday morning. Currently I don't know if the post office will be open, so while I will take the orders and try to post, this also means I may not be able to attempt postage for another 2 weeks or more.

So anyone who orders during this time, does so on the understanding that orders may not be posted out for "some time". Also people DO NOT pester me when stuff will be posted. Any news I have will be posted here and I will NOT be replying to questions emailed me about it either. This also includes bugging me because the packages are taking a long time to arrive. I have no control over the postal system, so do not ask me such things! If your expecting miracles then just don't order!

If people start bugging me about un-sent orders, then your order will likely be refunded and you will be banned from my store, as you obviously have not read this post before ordering! I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but I am trying to help people out in opening my store for a couple days and I don't want people to start taking the p**s over postal issues which I have zero control over.
