👋 Update 08/31:

Hey all, we ran into hiccups that unfortunately prevented us from providing the weekly update today. You can expect the update in full tomorrow, and we appreciate your patience in the meantime.

Hey #Team-

Brow furling, Ryan scrunches his nose and looks at his left foot. He grips the base of his black and white sneaker, and with a momentary struggle removes it. Sand furiously dumps onto the floor.

Let’s try that again.

Hey #TeamShadow,

Back from Shadow Island, I’m excited to welcome you to this week’s activation update!

For this week, unfortunately some users promised August 2020 for Chicago and Amsterdam will have their activation delayed to early September 2020. We’re sorry for this, and impacted users should receive an email by the end of the week with confirmation of their new delivery date. We’ll provide final details in next week’s update too.

Our team continues their work on stability for the Texas datacenter in preparation for September 2020 activations and New York is making it’s way through the backlog, all while California and Paris move along at relatively steady paces.
 

Thank you for your continued patience as you wait for your Shadow!  
 

As a reminder:
-We activate Monday through Thursday

-Beginning at 8am local time each day for each datacenter

It’s got to be a bank holiday in Paris and that is why we do not have the update.
