Ive ordered the boxed set too, about 1 week ago. So far Ive heard nothing of it, other than the standard email that my order has been confirmed. Should I get an email when they ship it?

Im not in any hurry though since a. Ive downloaded it already (and using it, works great!) anyway and b. bought it just to support the slackware project. Of course Id still want to have the official boxed CD:s someday

Well, I think they are shipping them by mule now-a-days so you'll get yours sometime next year by the looks of your location.... Once the mule finally makes it to the east coast of the US, they put it in a plastic bag and strap it to the back of a Dolphin to get it over seas.....

From the Slackware Store:

I checked the mail yesterday, and there it was! It was sent Priority Mail, just like the last time (I'm a subscriber). And I'm from the East Coast.

I've been a subscriber since 9.0...still haven't gotten 10 in the mail yet, and no shipping confirmation from the slack store. I emailed them three days ago, but haven't gotten a response. Anyone else having the same problem??

Yep.. Same exact problem. EVERY single thing you just said applies to me as well... Still haven't gotten billed for the release, no e-mail confirmation, no slackware. They charged me for my subscription fee tho. It was 29.95 instead of 24.95 like it says on the slack site as well... Sent an email as well and no response yet..

I think lately he might be gaining in popularity quite a bit and he probably doesn't have the personel to handle it. Just a guess I suppose. I'm going to have to send another email and photo copy my visa bill to them or something. Who knows what in the hell is going on... I don't even need it now... Oh well...

I never got an e-mail confirmation either. I was looking at my CC account online and noticed that I got charged. Later, I found Slack 10 in my mailbox. And it's still $24.95. The extra $5.00 is for shipping.

Well, I've only been billed once this year for 29.95 and that was months ago. I assume it was my subscription fee. How can they charge you an extra 5 bucks on a subscription fee when they don't send you anything? I don't care. He can have the 5 bones as long as he DOES hire more people...
