[SFD-discuss] Stuff not yet received (2nd Mail)

Dear Mr. Simango,

I (we, actually) are trying our best to get the package sent back as I 
already emailed you. Your last email was October 16th, we're now 6 days 
later and I have a day job (so do the other volunteers). I don't think 
you did ever pay for the T-shirts nor am I getting paid to send them to 
you. Life sometimes doesn't go the way we want (I am a Linux advocate, 
so I know what I am talking about ;-) ) and we're still trying hard 
(struggling) to get them shipped (back) to you. Understand the nature of 
open source and volunteering and please don't email me every 6 days 
especially since the event is over.

Now if you guys have organized a 2nd event or have a deadline or 
anything special, please let me know. Please note that even if you do 
have deadline I might not be able to make your wish come true. I will 
spare you my logistic problems as it is probably not important for you.

Now please do believe that we are doing whatever is possible to get 
those free gifts to you.

Kind regards,

Software Freedom International
