After we've exhausted all possible options of staying on the current server, we have rented a shiny (black) new one and will be taking this lovely place on the interwebs to its new home today, 11pm GMT+8. Transition should be smooth. But that's always ignoring any worst-case scenarios. Once the site loads at lightning speeds after 11pm GMT+8 you can rest assured that all the troubles of the old server will no longer be existant.
We are moving!
For the third time this year we are packing up our things and moving to another building. The move is starting right now (15th of February) and will end on the 17th of February. Until then shipments will be slow, pickups may not be fully synchronized, and our support team may be occupuied setting up their workplace rather than answering their emails. Bare with us, a new place always means better service to you eventually, but the transition is usually tricky.
Trappy is on holiday!
After a very tough last few months Trappy has decided to take on a filming gig and declare it as this year's holidays. He will be off until the end of February and hopefully bring back a cool video or two. It is also Chinese New Year now so please be patient as we run out of stock on a few items.
Some orders on the 7th November 2013 have been charged double. Please check your PayPal statement and IDs. We have gone through the payments the best that we could and verified the amounts manually and refunded where necessary. We may have slipped up and missed a few payments, so please double-check to be sure. The bug that caused this mistake has been fixed.
Regular Air Mail Policy Update
As of now shipments with a value in excess of US$750 will no longer have the Regular Air Mail shipment option available. Since only high value packages are affected, we have a suspicion. Apparently the customs officials world wide think stealing your money is not enough. They also steal your products. TBS obviously has you covered in rare events like these, but it has been becoming too frequent to turn a blind eye.
Fight vibrations by placing your GoPro Camera on the TBS Loveseat. Fits the front lip perfectly, cushions your GoPro and thus fights vibrations.
