  1. this would make a cracking Netflix special... can chronicle every step along the way such as Microsoft's journey to get the product ready, the online sellers trying to manage preorders, the logistics firms trying to cope and then us nutters frantically refreshing browsers and apps (hanging out of windows) to see if its any closer. All set to a Hans Zimmer soundtrack and presented in 4K HDR with Dolby Atmos.
  2. Has anyone managed to get DPD's real time tracking working in their browser? Tried Edge and Chrome but just displays standard message about when to expect it and options to change on top of a blurred out map screen. The app is fine.
  3. Had to go and drop the car off at the garage just now, drove past Saint Nick of DPD on the way to give him silent blessings. Even though he was in the opposite direction to the garage. On 34 of 101, projected time of 13:44 should be easily met I think.
  4. Curry’s/DPD email just come in, delivery between 13:44 and 14:44, order number 101. I have a Change Board at that time so might just record a voice sample saying ‘Approved’ and play it at random times throughout the call. in shocking news though it isn’t Phil delivering to continue on the tradition of console launch day deliveries but a new challenger had appeared. Not sure what his name is as the Email says Eddie, the app says Engin but then has Nick in brackets. Might address him as Saint Nick.
  5. Woke up just now to a curry’s email asking to complete a Reebok review, they’ve sent no emails besides it’s dispatched so far. At least get the thing delivered first before asking how it went. Anyway, the precious cargo has been delivered to the Dartford depot at 01:10 and then again at 01:12 for good measure, hopefully I’ll get a time slip in the next couple of hours.
  6. Broadbands around 60mb-ish but I expect their servers to get a proper hammering tomorrow. The copying across the network sounds interesting, I have a mini switch sitting around so might research into seeing if that could be used. Cheers for the tip!
  7. That was my intention too but I forgot to buy an external hard drive to do it with pretty sure I’ll get the console delivered tomorrow. It then by the time the system patch is done and I’ve downloaded any game at all from Game Pass it’ll probably be Thursday.
  8. I got an email on Friday, the subject was “Items from your order CURxxxxxxxxxx are on their way” and that’s been the only one. Was from no_reply@currys.co.uk, maybe check your junk folders for either the subject or sender?
  9. No, I just got an email from Curry's with the tracking information in it which I put in the DPD app.
  10. Same, the DPD note just says they have the order but not the item. Hoping for a flurry of activity later this afternoon
  11. Space has been earmarked for it but will try and squeeze it in the stand first; the space is 0.1mm short to lie it horizontally but hoping it’ll go in. Otherwise vertical all the way.
  12. Come on Curry’s, pull your finger out!
  13. I vaguely remember getting a £10 Boots voucher for Christmas and getting a tape from there. Buying from there gave the Mrs about 800 boots points too so that was a bonus.
  14. Kinda related I was buying a new telly for the boy’s bedroom and the cheapest place was Boots... didn’t know they had a side hustle on electricals other than toothbrushes, hair dryers and shavers. https://www.bootskitchenappliances.com
  15. Your items are on their way Hi Indy – just to say we’ve dispatched the small item(s) shown below, from your order number XXXXX. If you ordered other items besides, we’ll contact you about those separately. 1 x MICROSOFT - Xbox Series X - 1 TB Godspeed DPD driver Phil!
  16. Nothing from Curry's at the moment, hoping for something either today or Monday.
  17. Must’ve been a temporary glitch, the suspicious buggers are back to following me everywhere
  18. Has there been an update recently to this? Just noticed that Timmy and Tommy don’t follow you around the shop like you are gonna nick it all!
  19. The box condition usually wouldn’t be a concern but the Xbox X’s box looked quite nice in the unboxing vids. As long as the console isn’t in pieces then it’s all good
  20. I remember the One X launch and DPD Phil taking the absolute piss, following him using their tracker on the website the delivery route appeared to have been scribbled by a monkey with a crayon. Passed within 300 metres of my house but then went to an entirely different postcode altogether. I was in two minds to jump in the car and just drive to where he was and ask for it but didn't know if he would sign it over plus didn't want to appear too desperate. He turned up at 7:45 in the end, looked absolutely shattered. Anyone who what courier Curry's use?
  21. Ordered from Curry’s with the delivery option, pretty sure that it will come on launch
  22. Managed to get all the recipes and have as many pumpkins as you by the sounds of it, thanks for the offer though
