27" status change question

I hate to begin another thread but I have one question .....

It's the weekend in China. Are any of you seeing status change from processing to preparing to ship during this (presumed) down time?

My status changed to shipped this morning, but on the tracking page FedEx says it was received after the "cut off". So my guess is its not going anywhere until Monday.

If you are asking if machines are made on the weekends? Yes, we're talking about one step above slave labor for all intents and purposes. They aren't shutting down and going home on weekends and holidays.

Now, FedEx shipping the completed machines on the weekend is another story altogether. That's not happening.

I was wondering if there is any chance of going to from 'processing' to 'preparing for ship' over the weekend

Anyone else's status changed from processing today?

Been a bit quiet I think if they are working over there they can't be at full capacity.

Fed Ex showed at my door today (Saturday) with a big box, three day ahead of Apple's delivery. Fed Ex flew and processed the orders over the weekends.

But how about status changing from "Processing" to "Prepering for shipment". I refresh my order status page every hour and maybe it is worth nothing because it doesn't change over weekends at all and that's why it's so important to know...

I've been watching too ... no changes since I ordered 11/30.

I think one guy posted that he had a change this weekend ....
