The Starter – Ordered, finally!

  • Avatar of Marcus Benjamin

    I have my lunch break at 11 AM central time.

    I logged on using my iPhone at 11 am, waited for scottsigler/com/thestarter to change to the order page, checked twitter, pooped a little bit & waited some more.

    at 11:13 or 11:14 I got my book ordered via PayPal, I hope I got a LOW LOW book #.

    I have 118 or 125 of 3000 on The Rookie hardcover! who wants to buy? ;-)

    List the time stamp from the email you received from Paypal…

    Since we don’t have access to the actual numbers from the great and mighty Pulsar (You are awesome, by the way), let’s use the paypal email….

    My email from paypal was timestamped at 13minutes after the hour…

    How about yours?

    15 minutes and 9 seconds. I should have had my PayPal password handy. That might have shaved about a minute off of my ordering time.

    Mine was 19 after. It had loaded partially at 10-15 after but site then crashed and wouldn’t do anything. :/

    and it touches my copy number 38 of The Rookie, I fear for us all.

    And everything I do is funky like Lee Dorsey.

    Avatar of Tom Merritt

    Well had a few extra reboots due to ordering for overseas… time stamp: 1 Apr 2010 17:14:19 BST Should hopefully be low enough to reach sub-100!

    Avatar of Josh Hardman

    Hope I get a similar number to my copy of The Rookie.

    9:14:52 PDT! That was a very exciting way to start my day.

    Now to wait for Christmas in September.

    we apologize for the inconvenience

    To be exact.

    I wasn’t expecting to be able to order it at 9 because the site was telling me my page would change at 4, but I stuck around for the fun of it. I’m laying down refreshing the page, then suddenly the order page comes up and I freaked out, got up, ran in my socks on my wood floor (Took so long and almost busted my ass and slipped several times) to grab my wallet, and got in my order. Was pretty exciting, haha.

    I was surprised how long it took me to get to a sale page. With all the Junkies and Lurkers out there though I hsould be happy I got there at all! Fingers crossed for a low number though!

    Hopefully the Amazoners had trouble too, it would be a shame if they got lower numbers instead of dedicated and registered junkies.

    I had to rush home from work to order it. They wouldn’t let me leave early, the bastards, LOL I tried to explain why but to no avail. I have #9 of the ROOKIE so I will be happy with whatever numba I get for the sequel.

    I got me a tee also. Can’t wait to get it!!!!

    Ever been forked?

    Avatar of Dave Johnson

    I had my iphone, laptop and my boy trying to get online for 1 and a half hours before I could get past the Drupal error…. kudos to the junkies for so much devotion they killed the site… either that or the Hutchinssss unleashed kilroy 2.0

    finally got the time of 17.36 GMT

    Avatar of Kenneth Wilson

    Hey Junkies, had a few seconds while on my night shift and ordered my copy of The Starter and i tell you what the book must be a beast as internation shipping included its £31.00 thats like $47.00 anyway its worth it as i am a dirty junkie and Worship The FDO

    Avatar of Dave Johnson

    Trying to inconspicuously enter your credit card info into a website during a business meeting without being noticed is a bit challenging, or I’d have had it ordered 10 minutes earlier.
