Hi Tom -- I was a first day donor too.  Many day1 folks have received their
machines and more are in transit.  They are being delivered by Fedex ground,
shipped from Libertyville IL from Brightstar.  Fedex will tell you if your
packages are in transit if you call their 800 number and give them your
shipping address.  I have discovered through this means that my four are in
transit to be delivered tomorrow.    Are you on the West Coast?  I am.  It
seems that those have come latest.  You can get more help on the forum
http://olpc.osuosl.org/forum/ or on the irc channels
irc.freenode.net##g1g1(chat) or irc channels

Merry Christmas!
