Last 2 days my freight has been stuck in Japan, I received a call back today, explaining all incoming freight to the USA has been detained if it came from a possible corono virus infected country. I will have an update Monday. The US government has ordered all freight be examined and the history from the seller, but then again the chinese new year is going on, and everyone has closed shop for 4-5 more days, so now we wait. The freight still has to clear US customs in Tenn next week.



*Freight has shipped :)

I figured the outbreak would affect commerce into/out of Asia. The inspection sucks but is necessary.

It's amazing how every single new release that comes out from anywhere something always happens to delay delivery! Hopefully it'll all be good in two weeks! LMAO!

Yeah, the delay sucks, but there really isn't anything anyone can do about it. So just have to live with it.

Better be safe than sorry. That thing is no joke, and we don't want it spreading here...

@Kennyc56, is the "two weeks" some sort of sarcasm or a standard hold period?
I am asking , cause I work as IT admin for school district, and about a year ago we ordered some laptops from Japan, and shipment was delayed in customs exactly for 2 weeks...

I was being a straight up smart @ss and I wanted to be the first one to say it because you know damn well it's coming! I'm not not even ordering the new heads or CPU yet. I'm going to get my quads finished and play with them and test them for awhile first. It does seem that the answer is always 2 weeks though doesn't it? There will be some of the new setups around here soon and I'll be able to test them against my setup before I switch over.

I thought so, but wanted to make sure. Yes, it does seem 2 weeks is universal time period for fixing it all. I guess I will be getting a replacement CPU (which will be VPR) because mine went haywire. Not sure about getting a VPR head yet - I don't have any reference yet for minimum spacing and my install area is small...

Somehow I missed the other thread about you having issues with your CPU. Sorry about that, but I know that Jag will get you fixed up in a hurry!

Truly out of anyone's control and with something as important as this, it's an understandable delay. Thank you for letting us know.

No worries. I have no doubt he would. He's on top of it.

If some of the brain damaged Chinese fools would stop eating bably snakes and drinking boiled bat soup.....and also keep their "exotic" food eating asses in China...they won't infect the entire planet.
I don't think mocking other cultures is the best way to handle this
