Man if your one of the first dayers I'm glad I jumped ahead being with out this device all this time I think I'd have gone mad waiting for it (pre-ordered a year latter would have been first day but not enough money). Anyways glad to hear that your getting yours finally.
P.S. You may want to post on the other forums too and see then since it seems like this is a mainly devs forum anymore.
I'm in the same boat.
First day pre-order, just got my email a couple days ago. I received my original confirmation email around 23:30 UTC on September 30th, IIRC.
When the credit card fiasco went down, I repayed by check in the mail, which I fear may have bumped back my queue position. If you were a first day orderer and just got your email now, the same may have happened to you.
Its good that the first day is almost/already finished with after all this time. With luck and further steady CC production, hopefully the first batch will be at a close soon aswell. Its amazing what a ride OPT have had in bringing this lovely little device to market.
