I had one item that was ordered on the 28th Aug & only came the middle of last week and another (that according to ebay's tracking was delivered the day after it was sent!) that hasn't came yet. Normally I'd be jumping up and down, but with the ongoing delay, figure it's stuck in a container with 1000's of other parcels. I'd say it's setting up for a game of poker with your 2 parcels
Yeah I've a small parcel I'm waiting on from 3 weeks ago but it's typhoon season til the emd of October afaik. Keep me updated if yours arrive please
You can stick me down on the waiting list too.
Got a reply from one of the sellers. Seems there was also this causing potential delays:
"...Osaka airport was closed because of a tanker hitting the bridge that connected it with the mainland."
I've only ever lost one package from Japan in nearly twenty years, sometimes you just have to wait. Irish customs seem to be stopping more and more packages these days which doesn't help the waiting times either.
Does anyone know a good website to get plastic game box protectors? I found one site where it was less than €1/box, based in the Netherlands, but they're closing down! Was about to order a few things.
I'll be honest that I haven't really looked on eBay, the odd website I found was in the US. I'm mainly looking for console protectors for my mint boxes along with Rez and Shenmue and the odd Saturn or Mega Drive game. Some of the ones on eBay were €20-25 per console which was a lot more than what I was looking at previously.
I got my package from Japan
Got the Zzap! Annual.
It's very good.
Cool. Looks great. Is there a mix of old and new reviews etc in it?
Set up my PS3 and an currently reminding myself of how shocking the OS is. Slow clunky and crashes for no reason. It's also so unintuitive if you want to install anything.
I was watching some YouTube video about hacking the PS3 yesterday and they were saying the third party interface makes for a very stark contrast in that respect.
There are new reviews in it (Robin Hogg is back), and Jaz Rignall had a look back at some gold medals.
Definitely worth a read.
Sony pushed a new FW update there the other day, it breaks homebrew functionality so don't update if you want to keep the possibility of exploiting it at some stage. Haze (Mame developer) had some some thoughts on the OS that echo your own...
I've used that site several times, are they not taking new orders? The only thing is their delivery price to Ireland is a bit nuts. I need a handful of protectors, but don't fancy paying the high delivery cost. If they're still taking new orders, I don't mind sharing the delivery price if you want to put through the order as one?
Last I checked they had almost nothing left and had a 50% code for further discounts. Closing end of October I think. Yeah the shipping for a bit pricey with console protectors.
I'm in West Dublin, happy to go in on an order if we can find some decent prices somewhere
