Gigatron reaches the Falkland Islands (eventually)...

Post by bjamieson »

Hi folks,

I ordered my Gigatron in March 2020. It reached Chile on 27th March. Sadly, due to Covid-19, all flights from Chile to the Falklands had stopped on 21st March.

It finally reached me at South Harbour on the 26th July 2022, some 2 years and 3 months later.

I am so sad that Marcel never got to see the Gigatron alive and kicking here, we'd chatted by email, and he was tickled at the prospect.

The packaging was exemplary, the documentation was exacting, and the build was without incident...



The other kids crowd round to see what all the fuss is about:
