Bah!

It might turn up via ParcelFarce instead.
Well the tracking code is a bit odd, so could be another carrier, you never know, I'll check at the end of the day.

We have a completion date of 29th now so not long until I can have a proper workshop again!!

Ok, getting a bit miffed now!!

Yet again, no post, so no RAM for the Electron and my 32KB ROM/RAM expansion for the Beeb still hasn't arrived. I am most displeased :(

How long has it been now? Over a week?

If you like I can post a couple of 4164 to you tomorrow with guaranteed next day (Saturday) delivery. Would 4164-15s do?

RAM was due on Wednesday, but you know what eBay estimates can be like.

TBH I think it's a PO snafu, because we've not had any post at all this week. I know Chris Morley sent me over a 32KB Rom/RAM adapter for the Beeb on Monday, and that isn't here either, so the problem seems to be a little more fundamental. We haven't even seen the postie and there seems to have been only one delivery, on Wednesday, and that was for the main home owner here. Since he's been away, we know he won't have picked up our mail.

Let me see what goes down tomorrow/Saturday, because if the post isn't coming at all, then stuff you post may not get here either.

I'll let you know, appreciate the offer.

They just arrived, but the Elk is still dead. Worried it's the ULA now, but may have to pause now we have a completion date o the house. Have to think about it.
