Maybe I was very fortunate, but I received the package on February 27. And I live in Germany...
Probably somebody at US customs must watch each and every DVD being imported?!    

Thanks for another great edition and the extra tutorial!

Cheers,

Andrew

Mine arrived here in not-so-sunny California today, a mere week after I got the "it shipped" email on the 23rd.  If my memory serves me correctly, this was a *lot* faster than the last issue.   Westerners take heart!

Still waiting here in also-not-so-sunny-Southern California.  Hope it arrives in time for weekend viewing!

This is insane. Those "homeland security" people are what is stoping me from getting MY LLVJ in a timely manner.  

I think, for my mental health, that I should just stop following this thread until the twofer arrives. Just my luck, it will probably be April before that puppy shows up on my doorstep.

Mine is probably still spiralling around the world.  I'll get it when one of does spirals happens to coincide with Madison.  Mine was sent on the 22nd.

Not sure that this will allieviate the torture but . . .

We have to date received about forty/fifty "MY VJ hasn't arrived!" emails and posts.

It seems pretty clear from the shipment dates and the responses from US subscribers that the US Postal Service/Homeland Security system for clearing sacks of DVDs from us here in Canada can add up to two weeks to the normal shipping time of 3 to 10 days. The evidence is 'pockets' of non-delivery. For LLVJ-13 we decided that we would send out replacements to the USA after a full three weeks from the last shipping date (LLVJ-14 & Lightroom Tutorial shipped between Feb. 21 & 24).  So, we have set March 13th as a reasonable  date to start replacing the 'un-delivered'. Yes, they do go astray and I recall sending out about 20/30 replacements for LLVJ-13. But hang tight - the DVDs will likely show up within a few days if the past is anything to judge by.

Steven Sauve looks after our Customer Service, so please direct your requests for replacements to him via email

The recent posts confirm the suggestion that Homeland Security is behind it all. It seems that most of the U.S. gets it way after such nearer-to-Toronto points as Australia, Switzerland, etc. The San Francisco exception suggests that Homeland Security needs to tighten up their act there.

They may be checking each DVD at the border to make sure it doesn't contain pirated versions of Windows 95.

This has happened before, so I know what to expect. I've never had one lost. Maybe if I lived closer to Crawford, hmmm but then I'd never get it.

Maybe if you put the U.S.-bound DVDs in a big sack and drove them over the border to Niagra Falls and mailed them from there? I do get anxious to see it, but at the same time, I certainly want to keep Canadian terrorists off U.S. soil, especially those clever enough to hide in a DVD.

Right after my last post the mail came, and IT was here! Hot diggety! No more photography for me until I've watched the double dose.

So the LLVJ can make it to the U.S. eventually.

Maybe the original poster had it right.

Imagine the super secret agent seeing:

Schewe, -big, bearded, definitely looking subversive, techno babble, man has to be a terrorist

C Butcher, - big, bearded, definately looking subversive, radical enviornmentalist, man has to be a terrorist

A walk around RED China, whats that all about!!
