Ordering DVD from LinuxMCE website
« on: August 26, 2008, 08:51:33 am »
Hi Guys,

Have any one ordered this DVD from the website? I tried ordering it a month ago and still haven't received it. I tried to contact through google checkout as it uses google checkout and apparently there is no response from any one.

Hello LinuxMCE.org,

Mr Nilesh Naik has sent you the following message:

Status request for order #272735589557191:
Its now nearly month is there any reason why I still haven't received my order? thanks nilesh
 Order Details - Jul 22, 2008 5:50 PM PDT
 Google Order #272735589557191    
 Shipping Status      Qty     Item      Price    
  Not yet shipped     1    LinuxMCE 0710 - Both 32 bit and 64 bit installer DVDs  -  9GB LinuxMCE 32 bit installer DVD and 9GB LinuxMCE 64 bit installer DVD, sent via First Class mail    $5.00    
Tax :    $0.00    
   Total:    $5.00

As I only have 20GB limit per month and didn't wanted to use half just for downloading this DVD as $5 is rather cheaper option than downloading it. But one month past and no response neither DVD.

Does any one knows of a place from where I can buy this DVD in around Melbourne Australia. As I really don't want to download and spend my data limit.


Thanks
Nilesh

I'm in the same boat as you.  I ordered the same $5.oo DVD back in August, and still haven't received it.

Very irritating.

Well one option might be to see if one of the other Australian Forum members would burn a DVD for you and drop it in the post... I'm sure for the cost of local postage that someone would help you out....at least that would get you an installation DVD... obviously would not get your original $5.00 back though!

All the best

I think the point being made is that we paid for an item that we never received.  I appreicate the fact that others are willing to help out, but the fact remains that if you pay for something you should get it.  What in the world is the hold up?

The person who was handling DVD fulfillment is no longer in a position to be able to do so. I do not have any of this last batch, or I would post it myself.

I've removed the link from the frontpage for now until the situation is resolved.

Okay guys,

I find it silly that you guys are complaining over a $3 transaction, but...

Listen,

We're trying to restructure as a community, to become completely autonomous from Pluto. As such, the 0810 release is taking all of our time.

Since Pluto no longer fulfills the DVD orders, we cannot ship them. When we source a new supplier, we will fulfill orders again.

Please read that again.

I'm sorry guys, This was something we simply could not anticipate, but when we can, we'll get it running again. In the mean time, the DVD can be downloaded.

-Thom

Hi, sorry for the late reply.

my ordernr. is #152850105640610

And yes it might be a bit cheap complaining about a 3$ transaction, but the thing is that we paid for something and thus we expect to get it.
