    I handed off the unit to @Clemmaster this afternoon. Upon opening the package, clem discovered a very small nick on the bottom right side of the faceplate.

    I was not aware of this damage during my time with the unit, though it was clearly handled roughly on it's way to me (as I had to re-seat the transient modules inside the device - I posted about this on the Amethyst impressions thread).

    I do, however, accept full responsibility for the damage, given that I should have inspected the unit more closely upon it's arrival and before handing it off. I find it unlikely that it was damaged during it's stay with me, as it sat on my desk the whole time I had it (even during disassembly / reassembly to reseat the modules), but it was still my responsibility since the nick was only noticed immediately after the unit left my hands.

    Please let me know how I can personally remedy this situation. I dearly hope that this misfortune does not affect my ability to continue to participate in my favorite online community, either through posting or future loaner programs.

    My dearest apologies. Thank you for allowing me to participate, especially last-minute.

    Don’t worry about a small nick, these things are shipped around and moved all over. Can you post a photo of it for @ButtUglyJeff’s sanity though?

    Thanks for worrying about me @Vansen, but honestly I'm more worried about chips being unseated in shipping...

    Is anybody after me?
    I thought @ButtUglyJeff was on the list after me, but I don't see him anymore?

    Should I hold on to it until after Xmas, or ship it today?

    Buy away @ButtUglyJeff my pedigree champ. I won't have the time for the next few weeks. I'm sure I'll hear it before long!
