    This is totally like never asking out the Little Red-Haired Girl, and then she moves away.

    I is sad for what might have been.

    In the continueing exploits of "what the hell is happening to my bag" I just got a phone call from my mother (who had kindly let me use her credit card to reorder the bag after the first payment got declined) telling me that the credit card company had phoned her regarding what they percieved as fraudulent activity on ther card (not the whitechapel bag I don't think, but something else) but they also informed her that because of the fraud which actually wasn't fraud at all, they had cancelled any payments after that, which included the bag. Some external force seems to be trying to stop me getting this bag, but hopefully not. I just emailed the guys (and girls) at comic cavalcade informing of them of what happened, and that the payment might get declined, so hopefully I can get this sorted out and get my bag...

    Total bummer - I hope things get sorted out for you.

    So are you guys going to do another run on these bags?

    This bag is rather completely full of FAIL.

    There I am walking around a comic convention and yet no-one has fallen at my feet to worship it.

    I am displeased.

    @Reynolds I couldn't make it to the convention and I was sure Lem would do the excited worshiping for me. Or at least that's my excuse and I'm sticking buy it.
  7.  (3627.110)
    @Ginja Lem liked it, but there was no worship.

    On a tangent it was only as we walked out of the hotel on the first day that I noticed my brother was wearing the Dok Sleepless 'Science Bastard' t-shirt (for he is a science teacher and finds such things amusing) - Give us a few facial piercings and scrotal purses and we could have been a chapter of the Ellis cult.

    Added some decor to my bag at Fall-Con today:

    I just got some Death Note buttons that I want to stick on it....but I worry about the fighting between the bag and the buttons.

    FInally arrived yesterday, yay!

    I see what all the comments about the straps were about now, I think I'm going to have to add some chain links to it.

    I'm glad you finally scored your bag! (and thanks for posting the picture).

    The strap doesn't bother me at all, but maybe it's because I'm a pretty short guy or something. I love the bag, it makes not having a car a lot easier.

    i'll cross post here.

    the strap thing isn't just the length, its the thickness, the way the couplings spin so that the stresses shift to a weaker point, the fact that you would need to watch how much you put in it.

    Thank you for posting the picture, remotepush.

    I don't plan to overload my bag, but thanks for the heads up on the couplings.
    • CommentTimeOct 12th 2008
    yea, I found that out when I overloaded my bag. It's strictly for my laptop now.

    And yes, finally all the way to Sapporo, Japan! Repreeeeeezenting the finest the internet has to offer in the land of the rising sun!

    I've been wearing it out and about and today I went to a huge sculpture park in the countryside outside the city. Hiking up higher and higher into the hills of Hokkaido I found an Antony Gormley sculpture Shaft 2, which frankly was too good an opportunity to miss:

    Whitechapel X Gormley

    Yeah, as you can see I had to change the strap, it was just pissing me off. Otherwise, a fantastic, fantastic purchase.

    Finally retrieved it from the archaic mail room. The strap holds the thing somewhere around the bottom of my man-tit. Surgery will be required. To the Salvation Army!
