Project Elf shipments on their way



  • Hey!

    I just dumped a pile of stuff on our poor receptionist. Her duty it is now to make sure all of this gets safely into the winners' hands. Expect a serious package, newbies! :)

    In other news, I am still waiting for addresses from Immii and qtrahul. Yes, I am looking at you...



  • I have already sent you address.
    Again I am sending this right now.

    If you don't get then send me mail again.....

    If you got my mail of address then give me confirmation mail....



  • Ah, I found it! And Immii's too. :)

    Thanks.



  • Great news, this is a nice way to start 2011!!. Thanks Alexandra and DevNet Team



  • Thanks a lot Alexandra, now we are all sitting here, waiting for the post man ;-)





  • Awesome! Today (6 Jan) in Spain is the day when "traditionally we receive the presents":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biblical_Magi#Traditions, so this is just in time. :-)

    Also in Argentina, Feliz día de Reyes!!!



  • Thanks Alexandra, great work!



  • Thanx Alexandra, I was wondering if we can get some tracking number to track it as we are heading for ski in second full week.



  • Hi Alexandra,
    I got a package today, thanks a lot :-)



  • Hi, Alexandra have you got send the present? Can you send me the track number, i want another saga :)
    Thank's



  • Gerolf We wait your photo with gift in your hand ;)

    Thank's[/quote]

    I haven't shipped it myself so I would need to get all the tracking numbers bit by bit. Unless you have a really good reason for it, I'd rather avoid sending out all those emails with tracking numbers...



  • Vass as i can't take it now, I'll try at home this evening :-)



  • Gerolf you are lucky ;)
    mine is "trapped" at the customs, and now i'm doing the paper-work to set it free ;)
    Hope tomorrow i'll get it



  • Mine is in a customs, i just send paper...if i'm lucky tomorrow i will got it :)



  • This whole shipping stuff is turning into a saga! Every single country has its own set of very mysterious rules. Even within EU. It's amazing.

    And the best part is that the shipping companies seem not to be very well informed either...



  • I'm a bit scary, Argentina has a long tradition of corrupt customs officials, mysterious disappearances of packages and endless bureaucratic paperworks :(



  • Stuk, Immii, Alexandra, sooner or later everybody get contacted by TNT, bacause of the customs. And in the email there is consignment number that you can type in at "TNT's Track package site":http://cgi.tnt.co.uk/trackntrace/trackntrace.asp, and voila there are all the updates about the package.

    paulo don't be afraid, TNT is a quite well delivery company, they will ship it to you in a few days ;)



  • email? what email? in italy only telephone number and today i'm forgive to question about the number .

    I've got an e-mail a few days ago, to fill a clearance order for TNT that they use for making the customs clearance in Hungary. I though it's the same in every country since the package is sent from out of the EU.

    But as Alexandra said, it's quite confusing and over complicated, so I'm sorry, if it's not the same way in your case.



  • No, here everytimes use telephone (i'm not sure that email is fill on the packed).
    But here telephones is rapid then email :P

  • They asked me for my email address, then they wanted:

    to know the detailed contents of the package and their value (thank you for ruining the surprise :-( )

    a statement telling them that all the clothes in the package were not made of cats, dogs or any other endangered species (wtf!);

    a statement telling them that the contents were a present from Nokia and I don't run any kind of import-export business.

    Sigh...



  • Lol, peppe (italians), for me only the first # :)

    I am still to get any email phone or any tracking number. It is totally blank at my end.
    Hope nothing goes wrong at US custom office.



  • Reading this, I’m starting to believe that our post office is not that bad, it only breaks packages and misdelivers them (they could be found after a year or more, in worst cases —.—), and doesn’t really steal them.

    Though, unlike Italian post, it is not private, but government’s... Hope you’ll get all your packages safely, and posts won’t get too interested of them of Nokia goods and steal them :)



  • I am kind of surprize, didnt nokia declared while sending the gifts what things are in the packet??
    I remember few months back I was sending some small electronic device and Fedex asked to declare what things are there in the packet.



  • Grrr, I still haven't received. :)

    Yesterday I saw the program "Spaniards in the world", and the chosen place was Oslo (nice place, BTW). I hope this is the right signal, and I receive the package today, because I can't believe Barcelona is that far away from Oslo than Hessdorf. ;)



  • It's nearly double:

    • Oslo - Frankfurt is 1200 km,
    • Oslo - Barcelona is 2150 km :-)


  • Hehe, yes, that was one of my theories, that maybe the packages go through Frankfurt. But I initially assumed that Oslo->Barcelona was just one "hop" (more or less, since probably many stuff goes through Madrid), so it will be more or less the same to reach any EU city, plus possibly one extra day. But it's Wednesday, I'm still jealous of you. ;-)



  • Just received it, thanks Alexandra and Qt DevNet! It's awesome :)



  • I have received it yesterday and the device stays perfect in hand, but I am still using my N8 as my primary phone. N8 was also a gift from Nokia to Qt Ambassadors during the Qt Developer Days 2010 in Munich :)



  • blessed are the winners :)



  • Meantime I have also received my package (after I have cleared it at the custom). Thanks, it is rather nice phone and I very like the t-shirt, as well.
