It's understandable, the weather was pretty bad here as well.

You know, back when I lived in the Chicago suburbs it took three reported fatalities on the raod before we even considered that there might be too much snow for driving.

I was hoping to find a tube for the scroll, but it looks like I'm going to have to buy one. I'm not having luck finding a box for the instruments either. I tried Sam's Club today and there was nothing anywhere big enough. I'm going to go try Sears and maybe some appliance stores tomorrow. Sorry for the delay sending these last 2 things out. :(

That was me. Glad first round people are getting my packages at least. :)

I tried to clean off the sharpie, but the label wasn't glossy enough to protect it, so everything was coming off and I just left it. Works fine and the battery is good though.

Don't worry about that! I just really wanted to play it, I could care less about the little bit of writing on it. Thanks for the concern though!

Up here there is no such thing as to much snow to drive in. You guys are hilarious. I've never had a snow day in my life.

A bit more than I expected - no worries tho. A note for people donating next year - keep the items small :D .

There's still a few packages to send out because I can repackage them to fit the small-package requirements. I'll PM a few people shortly about a few items to see if they want either a refund from me or chip-in on shipping because the shipping cost was kinda ridiculous on the magazines and VHS tapes.

I've sent packages to:
dsheinem, Scrotumwound, Mr Popo, Miked, Nickfil, Bacteria, emwearz, Hobie-wan, Mathwhiz23, jfe2, videogameexperiment, heelsinc, last dojo, SpaceBooger and Luke
The few I sent ground-mail will take a while to arrive, especially the ones overseas. They're insured for $100, so if someone doesn't get their package, I can do a sort-of tracking thing if necessary. Hope everyone enjoys their new stuff. I've already got a box of stuff accumulating for next year, and the stuff that didn't get bid on this year went to Value Village.
