I got an email from MF requesting a response to if I still wanted to continue the backorder - for some reason this is their policy. Anyway, of course I called and told them yes. They then told me they expected my order to fill 6-18-12! The second batch is expected 7-6 I think.
But, why the manual is not yet posted is a bummer. Why? Since it is in production, I would think they have the details already nailed down.
