WS-Ted: Just to let everyone know, The cd's are in the middle of being duplicated/distributed, etc.
<private> to channel?
private from FoxZ:What?
WS-Ted: OMy best guess as to when the stores will have copies is next wednesday.
WS-Ted: But, we have no control over when the different stores will receive their copies from the distributors.
<private> nei, eg fikk beskjed om at eg ikkje kunne sende til kanalen
<private> men det virker no
WS-Ted: It is completely out of our control.
WS-Ted: (I'm sure they'll get it out as fast as they can)
<CarnbY> How many copies do you expect to sell?
CarnbY #Red_Alert :Cannot send to channel
<CarnbY> How many copies do you expect to sell?
WS-Ted: I decided to update the counter from when we were finished to when it would appear on the shelves,
CarnbY #Red_Alert :Cannot send to channel
WS-Ted: but it's only a best-guess.
