I probably was a bit fast on the trigger (you know how time feels when 
you are waiting for something good): I have now received a "Order 
shipped: OpenMoko direct order" e-mail with a tracking number, and is as 
happy as ever, can't wait to do some real hacking :)

I understand the problem of doing logistics for the first time at this 
scale is not an easy one, I wish there would have been a way of checking 
if an order w as still alive, especially when there is a "time-gap" 
between status updates.. I hope this kind of thing will come together 
for the mass marketing stuff :)
