I've read all of the other rules and promise to comply. AND, some time ago @lascaucaveman offered to throw rocks at my house if I fail....he lives just a few miles from me.

Last, please know that I have some nice bits of crap rat-holed for the day the glorious box comes to me.

Thanks in advance for your consideration!!

You have been added! And from Washington too! (from Washington, not in Washington presently)

It is a little backed up. Still three on the Sixth Edition. Stalled a little, but not with someone we should be worried about, unless something happened to him.

It is, indeed, an auspicious sign. When it comes my way, I will try to remember to pour a bottle of champagne into the BOC and have it blessed by a local shaman before I pass it along.

(Or maybe I'll just try to get it in the mail in less than five days this time.)

Five days is well within your allotted time. It just feels longer when the three people before you turned it around in two days each.

I, for one, welcome our new crap overlords. @Lascauxcaveman: shoot me your mailing address and we can be ready to roll quickly. Let's set some new standards for turnaround.

It's Official! Series Seven of the BOC begins!!!

Well here we go everyone!!!!

The box arrives safely at my house in Iowa yesterday. I have to say, I love the new liner that was no there the last time. Very cool!! Here are the pics from the arrival:

First Grimm was very interested:

Then once I got it on the table, ZB (Zaphod Beeblebrox) had to check it out as well. He climbed inside, but I was not quick enough to get a pic...

I still need to figure out what goes in, so it will likely not ship until Monday, but still a decent turnaround. But heck, I am the Crapmaster...

Well, blow me down! I skipped the box (took delivery of a special BOC instead) and lookie there - a non-drive Campy crank arm! I've been looking for one

I guess if people are putting them in the BOC, I might find one in the FSOT thread if I ask...

The Box 'O Crap is being shipped out today to @jeirvine so look out for it! Sorry though it went out yesterday, but my wife said it is still in her trunk as she did not make it yesterday.

Will the list on the initial post be edited? I don't see John on the list. Running on fumes today, so I probably missed it. Thought I should mention it though.

Also, I'm looking at the simplified (mobile?) version, so handle links might be elided.
