The UPU is a UN agency now - though it predates the UN by nearly 100 years Tongue

Good one TW!

Three buttons, three 510 connectors, and three voltmeters for the mod I'm planning. 
Assorted lengths and quantities of SS, Kanthal, Nichrome 80, and one random roll of Nichrome 60 that was supposed to be Nichrome 80. Whatever. Also some tweezers, battery cases, and a Rubik's cube. Mixing up the centers is my favorite trick. Yeah, I'm a nerd. Also some battery wraps in clear and black. 
Goon clone and Double Vision clone. A cursory glance tells me these are actually really good clones, everything looks well made and feels good. 
And the star of the show, the big one I've all been waiting for:
As you can see, I've been using it a bit with my Phenotype-L, and I'm loving it so far. It's smaller than it looks in pictures, and actually pretty light. With an atty on top, it still weighs a little less than the RX200 without an atty. Of course I just got my packages about twenty minutes ago and I have to go to work, so I haven't had a chance to play with eScribe or make any SS coils or anything, but I'll be using it in power mode today just to get used to it. 

Funnily enough, FT tracking/SingPost still doesn't have a clue where my packages are. It was last updated July 4 when it entered the country. 
Today is a good day. 
Just for anyone wondering, let's do the math: I placed the order June 15. Fifteen days later (June 30), it was actually sent to the post office, received by SingPost, and put on a boat to the USA. Four days later, it arrived in the USA... Somewhere. Then eleven days later (July 15) it arrives at my door. So 15+11+4+11=41 days total time from when I placed the order until I received it. So for anyone thinking about ordering from FastTech, keep that in mind. If you can't wait a month and a half for it, get it somewhere else. 

CONGRATS, that's quite a haul! I would have just called in sick and said I had shinyitis... Smile

FastTech should change their name....SloTech would be far more accurate... Smile I can't understand a week to simply process the order considering how fast they are to process the payment.... Scratch_one-s_head

My Pico came to today from China, 20 days isn't so bad.  Michael, it's like we have an anniversary of sorts.  More joyous vaping for all.

It's my third.  My first, a set to 2 ego-t pens have gone the way of the trash.  I knew they were dying within about a month, and after much debate, got my IPV5.  The pico I got as a backup/travel mod.  So no more suffering with the ego pens.  I figure my nautilus will work just fine on the pico.  Now I've got to find a why control my shinyitis.

You know, if my ego pens hadn't been so lame, I probably wouldn't have found the lovely folks on this forum.

You won't find a "why" from any of us. Shinyitis is one of the funner diseases, I see no reason why you shouldn't give in Tongue

I was just thinking of finding a "way" to control my shinyitis, because one should never ponder the why.  Didn't some UK group find that Shinyitis is 95% safer than waiting for an order from China?

RE: What did you get today?
I got some stats from Steam Engine and used eScribe to edit the temp control for SS, and I gotta say I'm actually enjoying it. Using the Goon clone with a 0.1 ohm 316L SS fused Clapton, it's actually a really nice vape in TC and just to test it out, I vaped it down to a dry wick and didn't get a dry hit at all. Of course, I'm not sure if that has anything to do with how high the wattage is. Could be that having it set so high makes it a nice vape, and then the TC keeps it from getting a dry hit. Either way, it's nice. I'll post a pic of my build in the "How do you dip yer wick?" thread.
