    I'm still waiting on confirmation from HBO after being asked to confirm my delivery address. They've taken payment so they better deliver :Paranoid:

    Why thank you kind sir! The only that bothers me here is bank deposit only? Has anyone else ordered one from there? I have a bad feeling if I order the money will be gone and will take awhile to get back? Especially if they have been inundated with orders. You're right, 290 in stock does sound optimistic!

    Also did a quick search on ASIC because their returns policy page doesn't have an ABN listed and it looks like it's only a trading name registered:

    http://www2.search.asic.gov.au/cgi-bin/gns030c?state_number=BN98564667&juris=2&hdtext=NSW&srchsrc=1

    (sorry for the paranoia but I haven't heard about OLPO before... or any of their other sites:

    http://olpo.com.au/about-us.php

    Had a busy day at work (only got home not long ago) otherwise I probably would have been camping this thread :Paranoid:

    Maybe! If anyone wants to sell one let me know!

    Crucial Online has 8GB kits (2x4GB) for US $137.99

    4GB kits are US $65.99

    Could be worth organizing group buys in each state amongst ourselves. The shipping cost is quite high for each order. Of course, it would have to be Agg Approved first.

    Glad I ordered mine last Wednesday. (from HT, when I first saw it for $205) Great impulse buy :)

    have some spare 1tb drives it can be a home for :)

    Hopefully it will arrive soon ... being in Perth sucks.

    If you're unhappy with that whole extra day of waiting I reckon a few people here wouldn't mind if you redirected it their way ;)

    Ahh crap, oh well... the early nerd gets the microserver :thumbup:

    Just updated mine with the custom bios and installed server 2008. So far so good :thumbup:

    Here is the custom bios if people can't navigate the RU site linked earlier.
