Well, here in Vegas, my issue #191 arrived this past Saturday, which was about 5 weeks after #190. And issue #192 arrived yesterday, which makes this issue one of the fastest ever in regards to shipping times. Possibly one of very few to arrive within Future's would be 14 day arrival window, so hopefully this becomes the norm, and not exception. LOL

And I also got both #191 and #192 on the same day (Tuesday, April 2). This is the second time this has happened... should I expect two issues every two months? Is it somehow cheaper to send them this way? 🤪

Got 193 today this is the second month in a row where I got my issue in less than 2 weeks a welcome change after 6 months of them taking 1 to 2 months to arrive or not at all.

Not entirely RG related, but since it's Future, it still kind of is...

RG #193 arrived in my corner of Germany after 8 days or so, which was quite a suprise given that the previous issues usually took something between 3 to 5 weels.

And right a day after that, the current issue of Edge (#332) arrived, just 2 (!) days after the store date - definitely astounding.

And finally today, I received Edge #331 - yes, the issue before, just 47 (!) days after the store date. Good thing I had ordered a replacement after a month or so (which resulted in different problems thanks to the god-awful cusotmer service, of course)...

That's downright insane and inexplicable, why on earth is it so impossible to get a decent regular delivery going?
