I am guessing one pound. The way USPS treats international mail is that anything over 12 ounces is considered 1 Pound. They don't allow a 13, 14 or 15 ounce option (for whatever reason). So yeah a 12 ounce item is more than likely 1 pound shipped. Thanks.

We are under 50% of the money recovered, but luckily we were able to make our car payments and rent for the month. This lowball and our GFC sales should put us close to where we would have been. Thanks for your interest Myv! This sale will be entirely on CAG so it'll be hard to miss ^_^ Thanks again!

** Keep in mind that new orders are constantly coming in, so I am actually processing more than it would appear based on numbers alone ^_^ **

Currently Working: 4/30/2010 = (6PM-1AM EST).
Orders to Process: 50 TOTAL (50 DR's [All Pre-Paid Orders have been processed] & 0 Package Forwarding Orders -- Finally entered all into the system!).

I will update GYROS as I go along and will answer Emails when I have time. Thanks guys!

Oh and please remember if you pre-pay your item as soon as you request it your order will be processed right away. For time-sensitive orders either choose this method or the Package Forwarding method if you are able to do so. All other orders will be treated as "estimate inquiries" and will be processed when we have time to do so, in the order that we receive them. Thanks! Back to work now ^_^

Next UPS Pickup for Package Forwarding Items: 04/30/2010 !

It's going to be a single download, and yes, I have the rights to the DVD image.


I have a suggestion: why not use megaupload.com?

Create an account on there and chunk up the DVD image into 500MB segments and upload them individually and have whoever download the 9-18 files (depending on DVD-5 or DVD-9 sizes) or so. Don't chunk it up in 1000MB chunks or 2000MB chunks as that forces the downloader to have a premium account or a membership...

I was satisifed with it and bought a lifetime platinum membership last year.

Inconvenient, slow speeds, and public file downloads.

** GFC Lowball Update **

Just so you guys know, for the first time ever I've added "GFC Service Charge Credits" as items in the current Lowball Sale. This means you can buy $5, $10, $15, $20 or $25 Credits towards your service charges on GFC for pennies on the dollar. Feel free to bid in our sale which is going on here:

http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=170651

(Please note these are only towards the Service Charges (the small fee we charge which is our only profit on the sale). You cannot use this credit to discount the actual items you are purchasing. Any unused Service Charge Credits will be rolled over for future use until you use up all your credits. If you have any questions about this let me know. I plan to switch over to a Service Charge Credit system very soon on the GFC website, as soon as this summer. Thanks guys!)

Baddestman, I just got home from work a few minutes ago. I'll be doing GFC updates and GYROS updates for the rest 7 hours or so :) Thanks.

Lucas252, a few things to know about Wal-Mart. 1) They charge 6% Sales tax and charge for shipping (you can get free shipping to store sometimes) 2) The gift cards they give you don't take off any money off the actual purchase, so you essentially still buy a $60 card and then they give you a $20 Wal-Mart Gift Card for future use. You're still taxed on the $60 price as well. 3) Wal-Mart sales are very iffy at best. They sometimes work as planned but typically come up with some problems. Just letting you know.

Yeah it's a bummer. You snooze you lose :( The good thing is that in the near future we will have a list of sales that are still available so this sort of thing doesn't happen again (or at least as often). This was a fantastic sale...but then again Gamestop has been doing a lot of these lately so I'm sure it won't be long before they do something similar again.

No sales tax from NewEgg (I believe they ship from NY) and I happen to really like them as a company because I tend to get their packages very FAST. They don't always offer free shipping, but many items do qualify. Thanks!

Hey Goomb, is there any specific port I use? I get some critical error when trying to login... It's wierd. Username and pass are right, I just physically can't connect!

Thanks for the FTP access by the way.

What program are you using to FTP? I can look into ports but I think it should just be port 21 or whatever is set to default. I will investigate.

Nevermind, I got it to work (apparently just a programming hiccup with filezilla). Could you do me a favor though and remove the links above?

Hey goomba. Currently have 2 items waiting to be shipped to you(stanton sa-5 mixer and power supply). I also plan on getting some headphones from ebay. Can you send everything in one package to save on shipping? I paid the shipping (seperate orders) estimate for two items already and was hoping i can just get all 3 items shipped together to save a bit of cash.

Friendly reminder from your neighborhood Goomba. A ton of your items came in today. Tomorrow the post office closes at 12:00 noon (I'll be at work) but many of you will receive shipment notifications tomorrow and Sunday as I'll be home after 6PM tomorrow and home all day Sunday (doing GFC/cleaning and Lowballing). So please don't Email me with "Did my item come in/ship out yet". I will update GYROS when your items are in and ready to go out and will Email you when they ship. If I need to contact you about your order, I will. Thanks!
