i got the email too. it irked me greatly that there was no hint of explanation or apology. just a message to cough up $129... an acknowledgement that i've been waiting 2 years for the repeater i ordered would be nice. then i would forgive them and gladly give them all my money. haven't they read any world history?? as punishment, i suggest participation in a large group awareness seminar for their customer service department. anyway, i debated NOT buying the upgrade out of irritation...but i want the upgrade and looks like i'll give them all my money anyway... so, in true co-dependent fashion, i'm happy there is some improvement in their behavior, i want to encourage them and i tried to buy it the minute i got the email! have to wait til tomorrow... i wonder if they're using this as a test to see how much interest there is before releasing mk2? since presumably those who buy the upgrade would also buy the new repeater. ahhh...
