I really want to get one so I sent an order confirmation. Is the guy still taking orders or is he just very busy so the confirmation will take a while?

If you have not already I suggest posing the question on the Denial Forums as they seem to be the officially associated forums:

I do recall a while back many people asking about back orders etc.

I ordered one on Feb 14. I received an email on March 9th stating that I was in "the queue" and that my order would be ready for shipping in 10 to 12 weeks, at which time I would be asked for payment.

YMMV.

I think it's taking longer than that. I was told in mid December that I was in an 8-week queue, and haven't heard from them since.

Same deal here, but I was told NOV 9th (2011) the same thing and haven't heard anything yet.

It'll take longer than 8 weeks. I've been on the queue since November too. http://sleepingeleph...5921dfc00e33bb9

In March 2010 I signed up and received the confirmation. In August 2010 I received another email saying it would be ready in 4 weeks. In April 2011 I received another email stating that I was in the top 20 of the queue and would be billed when the cart shipped. By that time I no longer had a VIC-20, so I cancelled the order.

I just got my MegaCart yesterday. It took a year but it's well worth it. (Interesting how I started this thread the same day last year, October 25)

Mine was ordered on 10/23/11 and ready to ship 10/11/12.

I had one before, but I sold it in frustration, when a faulty power supply took out all my C= computers. Then I realized my mistake (missed it!) and wanted it back, but my buyer didn't want to sell it back to me!
Replacement VICs are cheap on Ebay.

I had mine shipped to my folks' house, and I'm pretty sure it's waiting for me now.

You just can't get in a hurry for one. This is really a hobby project. It's not exactly cheap, and not available quickly. So it takes time and money. But it's so incredible, it is worth it!

May I ask what general ballpark you all paid for shipping? I'm assuming it comes from Canada, but not sure what shipping will cost

Mine was $12.00CAD for shipping. The seller wants to be paid in CAD funds. I think the dollars are about on par as of right now, but then there was a stupid Paypal "conversion fee" that was a little extra.

Yikes,

I just placed an order. I don't want to wait a year.
