they created a pot of gold by lieing to people and getting them to part with
their money. they said it would be shipped by a date (2 or 3 months after you
paid). it still has not shipped. i dont call that a success. i dont care how
much it might be "but that was unexpected delays". a few weeks ok - a few
months. ok. almost 1.5 years of delay and still not shipped - after asking for
money and giving a shipping date almost 1.5 years ago - fail.
