You're right but, whats the point when the thread is over? I just havn'ta sked for it to be closed I think, if a mod wants to they can go ahead and close this.
No need, Nathan. I think (but am only guessing) what antman meant was that a running day by day commentary as a sequence of new posts is maybe a bit too close to treating the forum as a personal blog. Perhaps a way out of this, when nobody has replied since your last post, is to edit that last post rather than create a new one? Reserve new posts in a thread for replies to other forum members or fresh questions and answers (as opposed to updates on how the order is going).
I am sure I speak for everyone when I say that I am sorry you are going to have to wait a little longer for the new kit. There have been a lot of admiring comments on your work (both on the forum and in private) and I know you will make excellent use of the new camera when it finally arrives. Meanwhile, keep taking photos and please share your best work with us.
