Mystery Box muse

With the Easter Bunny having been and gone early this year, it feels like we missed out on a Spring time Mystery Box !

@"Ken Gracey" Can you fix it ? Good time to raid the hoard of goodies ?

    Hello!
    Great idea! How about including an item of mystery with each purchase?

    Did the Groundhog see the Mystery Box shadow or not?

    Hello!
    Good one there.

    Mascot returned, but not taking messages.

  • Got me one this morning!

  • Got mine.
    They are going fast!

    WOW! Gone already, I snoozed, I loozed!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone's unboxing pics.

  • It's okay gang this time I am refraining from even wanting one.

  • Aggh! Missed it.

    No worries. @"Ken Gracey" has a self-confessed weakness when it comes to shipping mystery boxes. Give him a few months and I’ve got a fiver that says he breaks down and does this again. (It is indeed fortunate for us that there is no 12-step program for this particular addiction! Hehehe.)

    You know me; I can't resist. It's a habit, every night. But really, no more mystery boxes. We're done. No more. Nada.

    Somewhere, maybe in an e-mail or a post on these forums, a customer said that I relish the concept of swiping hardware piles off my desk and into Mystery Boxes. I haven't been to my desk in Rocklin in over a year, so maybe others are doing the side-arm "mystery box sweep".

    Man, by the time I read the email, they were gone.

    It's okay. I wasn't even aware that they were actively selling them.

    Mascot asleep, but in a different position.

    OMG ROFL

  • Ken is totally on to us. He whispers the words “Mystery Box!” and we start drooling like Pavlov’s dogs. :)

    Take my money, dang it! (And: “woof”. There. I said it).

    Hurting my self! Not only will erco buy one - he'll talk me into buying two also! :p

    Ken: Based on your post, I got up extra early and ran out to my garage, but was disappointed to find no Mystery Boxes there.

    Did I misread the situation? Were you just teasing me?

  • My mystery box arrived

  • You scored!!!

    (-sniffle-). Rub it in, Dave. :)

    I don't have a garage, I live in a City apartment, but yesterday when I got back from a trip to NJ and a Swap meet for the Vintage Computer Federation, I did not see one waiting for me either. New seeing what @davejames ended up with, I am now going to be looking for a green eyed individual later today.

    Not me, unfortunately. That was @DaveJenson.

    Sorry. I didn't see anyone with green eyes today.
    However, @DaveJenson as I complete my week this week, I'll watch for one.

  • So now that I own a Scribbler S2, does anyone have the definitive download for the S2 samples?

    Check the webpage for the little guy's documentation? Perhaps they are stored there as well?
