I received a message from RunRev support today that my DVDs had been 
about a month ago. I am waiting for my local post-lady to give me a slip 
of paper
so that I can pop along to the customs office to sign lots of silly papers,
  jump through hoops (well, metaphorically at least) and pay a customs
clearance fee for them.  If the merry Bulgarian postal service have managed
to bust any I will force the customs officers to eat the DVDs - expect a 
Movie to be uploaded anytime soon . . .  :)

'Overly' is probably the problematic word.

I would recommend the folk at RunRev to down-play the
conference DVDs in future, as, had they not been OVERLY
hyped nobody would have got all tetchy about what
happened . . .   :)

I cannot help wondering if RunRev would not have been better
to set up a passworded FTP site and let us download DVD images
and burn them ourselves - certainly would have minimised both
the delay and the aggro.
