Well, since it is now September (okay, its only the first, I know :) ) I was wondering approximately when in "Early September" the Smart Alec will ship? Next week? The week after? Any approximate date? I only ask because I'm headed off to university and am wondering how long it will be until I receive the bag, and whether it would be worth the money to buy a bag (thats not falling apart like my current one) for the time between now and when I receive my Smart Alec.
