    Finally, finally, the time has come! The IRS has given us our money, and I can afford to get a 1588 with 1610! I just have to wait to get exact shipping on the darn thing and I'll be ordering one! I can't wait! *Runs around like a chicken with its head cut off* (Ok, so maybe that wasn't the best euphamism.) I'm not even sure if euphamism is the right word, but, I'm excited and don't care if I make myself look like an idiot, lol.

    I bought one a few weeks back.

    It is sitting here filled with eggs.

    YAY! You'll love it! [​IMG]

    Mine is on my first ever attempt to hatch, but the eggs are iffy, my fault, not the 1588- I got the turner, too, and I am glad. I would have forgotten at least twice daily if I were turning by hand! I left it on the factory setting and it had been perfect 100 degrees the whole time. *knocks on wood*

    *Whistles* (Ok, so, honestly, I can't whistle either, but, you get the point.) Still waiting on a reply from Cutlersupply.com for shipping... I'll probably have to wait until AFTER we go pay the bills to order my bator, what a drag! Lol.

    *Sigh* I still haven't heard back from Cutlersupply. I was ready to order it early this morning, and was hoping that I wouldn't have to wait too much longer after 8am, and certainly before I had to go to work, but, still nothing from them. [​IMG] In their FAQ, it says that you're supposed to contact them to get exact shipping, so you'd think that they'd be on the ball with it.

    Alright, I got an email. I guess I'll have to order through email, but, hopefully it doesn't take long. As far as ordering direct, they're more expensive than going through Cutler! Lol.
