    I just received my three units today (well, one for me, two for a mate). Impressive delivery time from DessyTek!

    After pulling it out of the box (haven't even turned it on yet), I'm somewhat regretting that I didn't buy more...!

    uber disappointed that my dressytek BPay didnt go through too. Anyone want to offer me one of their multi box purchases? I would be extremely grateful!

    Well I got mine all working nicely...

    Just waiting for the most important stuff to sync over then I can run this 24/7 instead of my other beast of a server.

    Hopefully my next power bill shows it!

    I believe they canned all bpay, DD and MOs and processed all CC and paypal purchases first.

    Nup, group buys have to be approved to avoid unscrupulous people organising "group buys" and then nicking off with everyone's money.
