It sure is Bill Wink i have a large beech veneer desk with a frosted glass top (IKEA of course). the 23" cinema will go on there and I'll rip the 17" crappy DELL TFT off the wall mount. I'm thinking of setting the DELL up in the kitchen with a webcam pointing at my toaster "Dedicated ToastCam" Laughing

IKEA makes some interesting looking stuff... also looks like cheaper quality stuff too, but hey if it serves it's purpose (Besides, I can't imagine something as simple as a desk not working properly) then run with it!

It took about a day for it to ship after the "Preparing Shipment" Phase for me. Check your order status around midnight or later and it should ship. From what I understand, it ships quickly after the "Preparing Shipment" phase but because China has such a time difference on us it seems like a day. I suspect this because on my FedEx tracking it says that it shipped around 11:00am but I got the "ship notification" later that night (although I could be terribly wrong because that 11:00am might be in China timezone terms.)

Ok thanks, I can't wait! I took the fast shipping so I'll check at midnight.

Those Klippan sofas are totally cool. I have been wanting two of those for my lounge for years, but the sofas I have right now are still in excellent condition, so I cant justify getting new ones Crying or Very sad

Its 6:10am on Wednesday here in the UK and I just checked my order status again. Damn, my mini is still in Northampton, so delivery to my address today is looking slim. Its hard to tell on this TNT tracking site, because I think there are 4 boxes in my shipment (Mini, Display, Keyboard and mouse). Each one has a seperate consifgnment number, and TNT are tracking each of them seperately. I can only see 2 numbers that have arrived at Northampton hub right now... Doh!

lol... yeah, or it may be a FedEx chick, blonde ponytail and tanned hardbody. You could always give her a hug and your phone number (just in case she wants a shot of your new mini Wink ) I suppose its more likely to be a sweaty, tobacco chewing guy called "Gas" or "Burt" or something. Still... he's a life-saver Very Happy

Copied from my other post:
Ah... Life is good Laughing
I now see that my mini has went through my local hub and is now "Out for delivery" on the van. Should be here in the next few hours. Lucky for me, I am working from home right now, so I'll be here when it arrives.
My next post might be from my shiny new mini Very Happy
