This is an excellent idea, I hereby decree that anyone being sarcastic should use italics on the sarcastic portion of the post. Except for me, I'm always sarcastic and everything I say should be taken as such. Except this post, this post should be viewed as rational.

So that phase of the moon is what the hunchback of notre dame looks like after a trip to the waxers, that's great. Now I can never look at the moon again.

So, got my email saying that this is shipping out! Now, I have to sit patiently for two weeks and check the UPS site everyday, hoping it's almost here.

Ran out of room for the wines, and can't think of a good quote for now

However, as it seems I'm the first (whoo!), I'll have to see about tonight.

Is it normal for UPS to get your information on 8/13 and today, 8/20 their tracker still state Billing Information Received with no sign of it actually in transit? I'm on the East Coast.

Yup. It's on the refridgerated truck meandering across the countryside. When it reaches a UPS hub for final delivery processing, the UPS information will update.

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

Received mine today also, will probably try a duke tomorrow night ... one seems to be in a zin size bottle and the other in a pinot/syrah style bottle, if it makes a difference

Got my 2 sets this AM - Had the great fortune of running into the UPS guy on the road and he gave me the box approx 6 hours before he would have gotten to my house. Saved a good amount of 100 degree heat exposure.

Even better news...Kudos to the Wellington and Wine woot for the great packaging of the box. After my heat stroked Ty Caton's earlier this year, I was quite worried, but the ketchup packs and styrofoam got the little gems here in tip-top shape.

Now for the fun. I will be taking my 2 mystery bottles to our Palm Springs weekend to share with our wino friends. For the record I received a Pink dot and a blue dot bottle of "fake Duke".

Can't wait. Thanks again!

I got a pink and a blue dot as well. I was hoping someone would have cracked the dot code by the time mine arrived.

On a side note: The guys in receiving think I am getting kickbacks from our distributors. So, I spent the better part of this morning explaining to my boss that I am a woot-aholic, with a double major in wine.woot and shirt.woot. It may have helped that I had on the shirt from Aug 4th. I am pretty sure he joined today. Do I get some kind of Woot prize for spreading the word?

eta: to fix spelling errors, and I am sure there are still some.

Mine just came up on the UPS radar as being in Jersey. Which means they now have to backtrack west to be delivered on Friday. This is silly. What happened to that perfect, ideal shipping route that the Laura Zahtila cabs took where they stopped halfway across the country in IL first?

Mine just arrived at my desk a bit ago. Good thing it came today and not tomorrow as I'll be in DC tomorrow.

There sure are a lot of colors of dots out there. I've counted what, 5 or 6 already?

I guess y'all are the lucky ones. Sitting here in Texas and as of 15 Aug, the only thing I have received is an email stating that UPS has received the billing info. Sure wish I could be part of the group comparing dot colors and the joys of these wines. All I get to enjoy is Billing Information received--its very dry, without any body!!!

Randomness. I ordered a 1AM Monday when it launched. My coworker ordered about 5 minutes before it sold out. Both of us are getting it delivered to work.

Mine just hit Connecticut this morning (dropped in NY at around 10PM last night).

Hers hit her desk about 2 hours ago.

I'm sure there's something hard coded in their system that says

if username == "Corrado"
Package.delay(5.days)
end

That would make sense, but in all likelihood, it's something Corrado did. After all, everything is his fault.

Extra points if you can tell me what language that is... (although that example is using a language plus a third party framework) EDIT: and it's poorly coded, why on earth would I be calling a class method like that... bad form.

Mine got here today, I got two high shouldered bordeaux-style bottles, one with a red dot and one with a very difficult to tell light pink/peach/orange dot.

People who got orange, is it obviously bright orange?

People who got pink, is it obviously bright pink?

My mystery bottle is, itself, a mystery.

EDIT: SB confirmed in the other thread that all Pink dots are paper pink dots, while some orange dotted bottles are paper dots and some are markers on the label, mine is a marker on the label, and therefore an orange dot.

Just got the order. It is a little warm down here but it looks like no damage to the wines.

I have a red dot on my bottle. I am in San Diego and would be interested in getting together for a "Duke" tasting; if you're interested PM me.

Still waiting on mine to ship to MN. I've got the UPS notification, but only billing has occurred.

Anyone else in my predicament? Are they holding bottles for any reason?
