Yep, that's pretty much where I am.  I can afford to be optimistic, 
because it don't cost me nothing.  If they finally release the MkII, 
it'll be good, and I'll get one (and/or the upgrade for my original 
Repeater).  But I'm not going to die if Electrix evaporates tomorrow 
and the MkII never comes out.

In the meantime, I've got my MkI and I've got an LP-1 waiting for me 
when I finally get home next week.  The Looperlative is gonna have 
more than enough cool things to keep me busy for quite a while.  :)

Sweet!  Was this through the retailer or through Apple themselves? 
Unfortunately, I've had similar circumstances and taken them directly 
through Apple, whose Support team instructed me to buy a new computer 
(no credit, no nothin').  There's an argument for using a good 
retailer rather than buying direct.
