Well, it's weekend - maybe we should wait for the Monday at least.
What?!

It's the weekend, so what? It's already been FOUR days waiting on one person. Let's go ahead and move to the next person and then he can pick back up at the end if he decides to join back in. You know, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few and all that. There are twenty people waiting and we're waiting all this time for one person?

You guys do what you want. I know dadalo is a regular on here and I'm sure there's a good reason and all but it seems like we're allowing an inordinate amount of time for an obviously stalled thread.

Again, just my two cents.

And has been on here daily. Again this morning, as well as yesterday. Must have notifications shut off, not to see all the PM's sent, I suspect.

What's the rush people? Got nothing else to read? Dadalo will no doubt check in sooner or later, and we have a while before cutoff date.
Back to my book now......

That's easy to say if you're at the front of the line or have already gotten a gift code. If you're at the back of a long line of people, not so much. I mean, if everyone took four days to respond, that cut-off date would come up pretty quickly. And when you're in on something like this, just to be honest, it really is sort of inconsiderate to the others. I mean, personally, I don't consider four full days rushing.

I'm sure he isn't being intentionally inconsiderate and that there is likely a very good reason.

I'll go read something else and wait patiently.

If I'm reading it right, I'm almost at the head of the line - I believe it goes Dadalo, Mobmind, and then me.

I have to admit that I'd like it to be moving a bit faster. I always have this fear that I'm going to mess it up somehow and break the chain and the sooner I get the code the sooner I can get past that and stop worrying about it.

On the other hand, we've got more than a month and a half, so there really isn't any reason to worry at this point.

A month and a half? I'm not so worried now, then. I remember what happened to me with the April code. I spilled a large cup of water on my notebook computer. Fast reactions (flipping it upside down, hitting the power button and pull the plug) saved it, but I had the thing upside down and drying for three days. Of course, someone asked me for the code, which I'd had for about a week right about the time I went computerless.

I do hope we see some action soon, though.

Hm, dadalo was in 10 hours ago. I just thought that there could be all kinds of occasions in the real life to keep people away from the computers, but next week and new workday should put an end to that. Now I think he must have forgot this thread.

Makes me a bit suspicious: if you get so much PM-s that you have to turn off notifications, what are you doing wrong? Then again, could be device thing, not everybody uses PC for the quick look-see.

OK, if he/she has been on site but just not looking, how about we skip over for the moment and he/she can join in again at the end. So, if the person before would like to pm the person after with the code, that should work.

I have sent the new code to gweeks, the originator of the thread, who can make a decision on what to do.

dadalo hasn't responded to my PM even though the system says he's been on. I've PMed the code from GeckoFriend to mobmind. I hope the code is still good. If dadalo comes back he can add himself to the end of the chain.
