To all winners: I've now received everyone's address unless you received a PM stating that I did not (only 1 person). Your remotes will be packaged over the coming weeks and shipped as time allows! Once again, congrats!

All remotes have now been shipped via first class mail. Winners within the US should start seeing them late next week, Canadian winners in 2 weeks, and all others in about a month or so.
