I'm still patient but part of me is now wondering what else is being forgotten. Best luck to the MD staff.

> wondering what else is being forgotten
Trying to come up with a list of things that could go wrong :
They receive half the orders from the case manufacturer, and discovered that they're all the left half.
Diodes are all installed backwards on the PCB (this can actually be fixed in software).
Diodes are installed in random directions (now this would be fatal).
Plate does not fit Matias switches (this would of course only suck for the ~40 people who picked Matias switches).
Plate does not line up with PCB.
Container carrying keyboard parts fall off ship in a typhoon and sinks.

I'm pretty sure this is sarcasm, but in case anyone is ACTUALLY worried about this: > They receive half the orders from the case manufacturer, and discovered that they're all the left half. The cases (provided they're similar to the lister design from the original 'dox) use identical pieces on both sides. As long as you get 2 cases, you're good to go.

I appreciate your continued effort to get this out as a quality product. So many minor details each with their lingering affect on other minor details. Glad I just have to sit here waiting; sounds brutal :)

With any other drop, this could have been a funny joke. But with this one, I seriously dread something like that :s. And of course the classical mailbox not found by our wonderfull mail delivery in my country.

On a lighter note: deep down I am sure everyone appreciates that they will be receiving a leopard and not a bobcat ;) https://xkcd.com/1031/ https://xkcd.com/325/

Next ErgoDox drop you should slowly over time change your Avatar to a tired and more defeated version of yourself. You've been the face of a little firestorms through this drop. I commend you for keeping up a good attitude, you seem to genuinely like what you do and want both MassDrop to be better when it needs to be AND make sure the customers have a great experience, even when things are out of your control.
Seriously, you say we all deserve gifts but I think everyone can agree you deserve some time off after this!

In lieu of time off Alex will get his own consolation gift: a spare Infinity Ergodox. And he'll never be able to use it or the nightmares will come back.
