Two S110v N5's and Two K390 Mules on their way to Daly City, California USA Earth.

Proxy'd for my good friend Josh here on the boards, I got him in also for one N5 shipped straight to him.

I'm going back to bed now.

Gee, I finally was able to order 1 Native Forum knife. I had called SFO and they said their servers were having a problem. They took my name & number and said they would call me back. After hanging up, I keep trying and it went thru. I also had to back out because I was playing with the quantities but was able to shoot right thru the second time. Maybe they rebooted the servers. I've been trying since 8am but I'm happy now.

One of the many benefits of living in Colorado is being able to swing by the SFO. I hope everyone that's trying to get a knife is able to. Take it easy on the SFO folk. They're good people. The phones were ringing off the hook there and everyone was working hard to handle the requests.

I'm ready for the "I hate you" responses. ;)

If that is the case I would say it's a design flaw in the Sypderco website. You can't blame Google Maps API, it wasn't designed as a shopping cart system, it was designed for maps. For high volume shopping carts there are other more appropriate zip code services out there.

I wonder how quickly these would have sold out if there had been no computer issues.

I got mine ordered. Took about 30 tries before the state/zip error went away.
How does one even check quantities. I have seen this mentioned before, especially with Mules, but I never have figured out how to do it.

You're right of course, sometimes easier said than done

I finally got one. I was giving up in 5 minutes. I hit refresh, went to go to the bathroom and came back to find a new page on the screen, the one requesting CC info. Whew! Good Luck everyone!

Nice pics! That would be cool to live close enough to swing by the SFO, I would be *so* broke! :D

It took around 50 minutes, but my order finally went through. I figured I had the knives in my cart, so just kept trying every once in awhile to make sure my web session hadn't expired, and I finally got through.
Which Knife, A or B? get Both! (and C, D and E) :)

I don't believe that one is a Buy-It-Now auction, so it must run the full 10 day course or whatever length it originally was.

The site is working now it seems. I actually enjoyed the thrill (if you will) of getting jammed up at that state query page over and over for 50 min+.
Never once checked quantity, but I did refresh this thread over and over haha.

Congrats to all the forum members who got at least one so far, and thanks to our friends in Golden, Colorado for doing the best they could considering the onslaught.

I wonder how long the wait would have been if we had no computers. All of us phoning in our orders. (The flaw in that fictional scenario is that without internet, we would have no forum and no forum knife)
