Shipments have begun.

Shipping is underway.

For US perks almost everything has arrived at the fulfillment center.  We are using Amazon for fulfillment which should speed things up and give us better tracking.  Monday most of the US perks will ship and emails should go out with notices.  A few things are lagging so some shipments might take a few days extra, especially on the west coast. 

For international perks we are shipping directly with DHL.  We ended up getting much faster transit times for right around the same price.  It took a long time to work out, so we didn't want to announce it until everything was done.  We will be packaging those shipments starting tomorrow (Saturday), so you might start seeing email notices.  Its the express service so they should arrive quickly, depending on customs.  If you have an international order and haven't paid the amount due for international shipping your shipment is on hold until we hear from you.  Once we are caught up a little bit there will be another notice email to anyone we haven't heard from.

The PengSticks are not shipping yet.  There seems to be a regression in the code effecting X and we want to get that worked out before we ship.  I think shouldn't be more than a week.  We have an much older stable image we might have to go back to but we really want to avoid that.

We should be posting up guides and code for things by mid week to beat the perks.  It might not all be on-line before perks start arriving.  A lot of info is already popping up in the forum at

    I think the best transport for international is USPS. Why ? because people don't paid customs duty. Fedex, DHL are not duty free :s
    But our package arrived faster :)

    Thanx for your work, I wait for the email ;)

    I wasn't aware USPS wouldn't collect the duties. I thought they just passed off to you local post office which I figured was more likely to collect every penny.

    We had other problems than speed. USPS cannot deliver PengPods to Germany and the international tracking is terrible. Some of contributors in places like Brazil gave warnings like "If you really have to use the post office then dont bother to ship it"
