@kinman Many thanks
I hope your doesn´t get caught by customs office like mine...
It´s quite a long wait...
I don´t think I´m going to update the calculator anymore, as everyone left should receive their playbooks within 3 working days....

FYI - My Playbook arrived on Monday morning. The FedEx tracking information said delivery was to be at 10:30am. I wasn't going to be able to be home until noon. As per advice from FedEx, I left a note on my front door saying that I give them permission to leave the package without a signature. I had to have my name printed on the note with my signature below it. This was sufficient. When I arrived home later to check, there it was.
I don't know about the rest of you who have already received their Playbooks, but this thing is cooler than I had imagined. It's completely worth the wait.
Finally, this thing is so cool that I've been doing nothing but playing with it since I got it. Now that the dust has settled, it's time to get back to development. I apologize to RIM for procrastinating my development, but this device is just SO cool, that I got distracted!
Thanks again RIM and hang in there to those of you still waiting. You won't be disappointed.

My Fedex number didn't start working until this morning. Unfortunately, even though I got the email yesterday, it isn't shipping until today and I won't have it until tomorrow. It's amazing how we can wait for weeks, and the last day or two is unbearable!

Finally got my shipping email today (ordered on April 14th, and in theory it'll arrive tomorrow at 10:30am)
That's the good news.
The bad news is, that it's apparently being shipped to "Hashmonaim, TX"
Not only do I live in Houston, TX not "Hashmonaim", but Hashmonaim isn't even a city in the Texas, or even in the US. (although apparently it is a city in Israel.)
According to the FedEx link, it's going to arrive tomorrow, but I have no idea where it's going to arrive. I sent an email to the shipping people, letting them know what was going on, but no response yet.
So...yeah, I might be getting a playbook tomorrow, but not really sure right now.

Thanks to the posters of this forum, I may have checked it 4-5 times a day to keep from panicking.
And special thanks to Juliopp for the calendar, though it wasn't accurate near the end (not your fault, shipping slowed down), as it was nice to see a calendar to give me some hope.
