In the FWIW department (AKA "Who cares?"), there have been over 200 posts in this thread in 24 hours.
Was this thread excluded from the February spam contest? If not, that could help explain the high post count.

Spam contest? Did you mean Adam's generous gesture to do something nice for the members?

No idea.

I won't buy a k-3 until its fire sale.

I would be surprised if it wasn't!

OTOH, would it be so bad to concentrate all the spam in one place?

3 people just quoted me. Now I can post replies in 3 separate posts

And I won't buy a K-3 because I don't know how to multi-quote from my phone.

How 'bout getting back on track here? USPS is usually quite quick to ship stuff (well, at least better than the parcel "services"), but my Spotmatic seems to in limbo somewhere. Last status is that it departed Elk Grove Village, IL on 19 January.

Maybe it's in canoe transit across the Atlantic? Or do economy packages have to swim on their own?

Sometimes the tracking info is not updated because the package is on a truck for a week or two. I've had stuff show in whatever freight terminal for what seems like forever, then suddenly show up at the terminal not far from me, and delivered all in the same day.

And by then it is already in my hands.

I was contacted about canoeing it over, but I told them I wouldn't take it until the summer, they said they had someone who could start in March...

The reasons are many...

...the outcome is one.

Hocir is denied.

Is Hocir really involved with Spotmatics as well? I thought the curse of Hocir was limited to the K-3 for now...

Package tracking was designed to drive sane people nuts so the sanitariums can make more money!!!

Is that possible in this thread? Is "on track" bacon, or cheese, or cars, or Hocir?

I won't buy a K-3 because Hocir didn't add antigravity to protect me from this black hole of a thread, consuming everything in its path.

Don't think it would make any difference one way or the other!! This thread is special, and nothing is needed to boost posts!!!
