When I place it in my shopping cart on the website it doesn't say it is a pre-order. Does that mean it's shipping now?

I have mine on overnight delivery, so if they said on or before the 6th then perhaps tomorrow or the next day provided they were able to keep to that date.

Packaging or misc things can cause delays so not sure. I'll be looking for it tomorrow if they met their date.

Placed my order January 27th and got the email that said it would ship on or before February 6th. Checked the order status just now and it says that the order is processing. Have they not shipped yet? I'm looking forward to trying out the new features and tools, so please forgive my impatience. :)

Shipping of BibleWorks 7 started yesterday. We had lots of pre-orders though so it may take as long as two weeks for all current orders to be processed. We're sorry for the delay but we're working as quickly as possible.

Charlie,

Good to know - thanks.

Well now it's just a game to see who gets theirs first :)

Major bummer! My order number is 1500, and an international shipping to boot, so technically I should be getting my 7.0 at the very tailend of this shipment. But didn't Jesus say, "So the last will be first, and the first last” (Mat. 19:16)? ;)

I'm order 1822. :(
Maybe I can use this as an excuse to turn in work late to a class...

I do confess I think future order confirmations should be worded differently, the message sounded like an assurance that shipping would be on or before the 6th, not 2 weeks later. Just a note for future reference.

Indeed, my preorder #1597 confirmation said, "Thank you for pre-ordering an upgrade to BibleWorks 7, which will be shipped to you on or before February 6, 2006." Looks like that was too ambitious.

My order number 2115 (placed the middle of last week) also said it would be shipped on or before Feb 6. I guess good things come to those who wait. :)

Now maybe you can see why BW is always hesitant to give exact dates. Nevertheless I'm sure everyone they have is busy filling orders. Now that they have their product, it's sure not doing them much good sitting there :)

Whew! Times change. When I first started teaching, the excuse was "my dog ate my paper," or "my little sister spilled her supper on it." Then came computers, and "My computer 'ate' my paper," or "My printer wouldn't work." Now we've moved on to "My Bible software update didn't arrive." :D

Humor aside does anyone from the staff know how many you can process on a good day? 200+, 500+? and where are you at currently with orders say the 900 range or less...

and are they processed in order received or is overnight delivery a factor.

I just want to get a rough idea when I need to be home since I don't have a tracking number and don't want to miss it when it does arrive. Nothing more depressing then seeing the Fed Ex tag on the door when you step out to grab some food.

WooHoo!

Just came in the mail. I didn't recognize it because the box was tiny compared to the release 6.0, all the manuals must be digital format this round.

Also got that Logos Dead Sea Scrolls at same time.

Too bad I have to work right now ...

The best thing about technology is all the new excuses it provides.

Just to clarify, my order was 1292...and it's going to be delivered today.

C'mon you big brown truck!

For those wanting to see where in the system things are, just got an email about my order 1822 being shipped out. 1822 orders shipped in a few days? Not bad, not bad.

I only got two e-mail confirmations, though :rolleyes:

I got mine in the mail today and I am getting ready to install it. It was a bit of a surprise because I live just north of New Orleans and our mail is still slow, six months after Katrina

This is like tracking santa claus on Christmas Eve.

"I've got presents under my tree, and I'm in Virginia!"

"I heard jingle bells a few minutes ago, so I'm checking my mailbox now!"

I myself just got an email yesterday, and expect Santa to be stopping in NC Monday or Tuesday.

BW7 is now on my laptop! Just in time for the big snow we're supposed to get.

I got scared when I tried to install it and it hung up. But I started over again and it installed just fine.

Are orders still shipping out? I see a poster several entries earlier who stated that his order number 2009 shipped last Thursday. My order number is 2115, so I would have thought it would have been shipped shortly after 2009. However, I have not received a shipment confirmation email, and when I log into "Your Account" from the BibleWorks home page, my order is still listed as "processing". I ordered a few of the new modules along with the upgrade to version 7 (EDNT, TDNT, and IBHS). Does that change how things are shipped?

Mine was supposedly shipped on 2.9.06. I guess that means it should be here soon.

Wow, so many discs. it took me about 30 minutes to install. I have a learning curve in front of me. Glad i installed the videos.

Did guilford get an answer to his question? I sent an email thursday and havn't recieved a response. I'm sure the guys at BW are busy.

I didn't get an answer on the forum, but I did finally get my shipment in the mail. :) It arrived at the end of the week and I installed it last night. So far it's great!

Hi, I just ordered BW7 earlier today. Just wondering if anyone knows the highest order number sent out (Yes... i'm excited... and impatient.. :)). I just would like a general time frame. ..
Thanks, Matt

Made on 02/10/2006
Received Friday 02/17/2006 (Bibleworks website says shipped on 02/17/2006???) but the USPS stamps is 02/15/2006

The Lord certainly hears prayers
