I’ve just spoken with the DVD manufacturers, and they have told me that the DVD’s have been ready since wednesday, but the hold up is now due to the digipaks. They must be getting sick of me by now, as I am constantly emailing them, desperately asking if they can get things done faster, and likewise I’m beginning to get sick of them. The bottom line is that DVD’s will not be getting sent out today, Friday 13th. This is a big negative, as I’d hope to hit this optimistic date, but as with everything there is a positive. The price of the combo will remain at £17 until the DVD’s are shipping. Once they are shipping it will jump up slightly, so if you’re umming and arring, then cease doing so and commit. The first step is always the hardest…

I’m on my way back to England right now so if necessary I will drive down to the DVD manufacturers and pester them in real life. As I said, I’m doing everything I can to get these out the door as soon as possible. To those who have ordered only the DVD, patience is a virtue sent to test the strong. If the reviews are to be believed, it will be worth the wait!

Also, a special thanks to Jarmo Annunen who really went way beyond the call of duty by spending many hours re-writing a bunch of code for my site in order for the download system to work flawlessly. Not only does he code superbly, he has a great climbing gym and a great shop, so if you’re lucky enough to be in Finland, check it out!
