    My CycloDS was ordered on 6th October and I have had nothing but excuses from TC for over:

    88 days (and I finally got my CDSE)

    I am not saying where I ordered from as it is not the online shop fault but TC for not actually sending the CycloDS (black) yet

    The black CycloDs was only supossed to start shipping 15/12, but it was Saturday, wich isn't a bussiness day, also i think the black CycloDs's manufacturing is a bit late so, you might have to wait a bit more.

    No the shipping date keeps being moved, originally it was a "couple of" weeks from my order date. It may not even be TC's fault, however as they are the ones who keep giving the resellers lies instead of actual delivery dates ....

    I have posted this in TC forums (ban time again I suspect)

    You know what is really annoying? [​IMG] it is a piece of black injection molded plastic that is holding this up. it's crazy! [​IMG]

    Yeah, I realized the other week that the expected arrival of black evo stock was on a weekend. Depending upon who they use for shipping to retailers they COULD actually get them on Saturdays as they'd probably be a large enough shipment that the cost difference between "fast" delivery and "normal" delivery would be negligible.

    @MadBob:
    Too bad that you couldn't make that image javascript (or something) controlled such that you wouldn't have to manually update it...

    I don't have to manually update it [​IMG] thats why I am using such a lame (how many days since my baby was born) image [​IMG]

    I have been searching for a "Time Since" counter and this is the best I could come up with [​IMG] I found lots of count down timers but what use are they? I have absolutely no idea when it's coming.

    I have been sat on a SDHC 6 GIG card for months now (not literally) [​IMG] I even ordered a DSTT out of pure boredom. [​IMG] well it was only £12.72 delivered.

    ouch 73 days, and i thought me waiting for a dual shock 3 controller for 27 days is bad enough, it's not stuck at customs or something? and can you buy the black cyclo ds now or is it still delayed? they announced it months ago but you still can't buy it anywhere.

    The vendors say after the new year now for the black evos...

    @MadBob
    Ah. Had no clue as to where you'd gotten that, just figured that you had tossed something together fairly quickly...

    i hope you get your cyclo ds soon, i ordered mine from modchip-store and got it next day, no waiting at all and it works fine [​IMG] maybe you should have ordered from a uk seller instead to get it quicker?

    You liking your DSTT? I'm thinking of ordering one, since they're so cheap.
