They were looking for $70,000 USD, initially. Now, they are over $8,000,000 USD. :D 

 

I think the website they are on will get 4% of that. Nice advertising rate.

How's the bee keeping coming along Paul?

 

Have you got your hive yet?

 

Got your bees yet?

No. I was in contact with the guy. I was supposed to be contacted last month (at some point during April, anyway). Not sure if they changed their minds, didn't have a hive available, or what other reason it may be. As soon as I can make contact with them (READ: someone), I will update everyone here. It has, unfortunately, been a bit frustrating.

I'm not too surprised at the delay and lack of response.

I guess that if you plan a business for about $70K of orders then get $8M in orders in a month or so, it causes a few problems!

A good kind of problem for a business to have, but not so good for waiting customers.

 

Cheers, Jon

Nooo. Wait. This isn't regarding the Australians who had their new invention. This was a local Khmer guy who had some bees and hive (supposedly) for sale.
