I've been trying unsuccessfully all day to get the list. It doesn't download in Safari - just bounces me back to the NARGS homepage. However, Firefox downloaded it instantaneously.
The seedlist downloads instantaneously for me too, but I'm confused...is the online ordering working for anyone or should we just mail in our orders?

I never managed to open up the seed list but Joyce sent me a copy of the basic list via email - I didn't expect that so thank you very much. Thank you for trying so hard to get it up and working - I can only guess at your frustration but technology is so complicated and integrated these days that the best laid plans............... Appreciate all you're doing.

I have my selections made but the online ordering function still isn't working for me. Everyone else in the same boat?
Perhaps whoever ends up fixing the problem can post in the forum when it's fixed.

The seedlist came through for me,but the ordering link does not activate for me.Thank you to the people who organized this---it will be great when it is all functional.Caroline
My 'inside' information is that there is one last issue to be addressed and then it will be a 'go.' Hopefully that will happen soon. Thanks for your patience.

I have my seed order all ready to go....should I wait for the online system or just mail it in? I imagine the online system should make it much easier to process all the orders, but I don't want to miss out this year. Thanks.
If you mail in your order, it will be 2-4 days before the order is actually processed. I can't imagine any scenario where the Seed Exchange won't be fixed by tonight. So considering the alternatives I would suggest waiting. I've been waiting for 3 days as well, and the thought of sending my order in by mail has occurred to me as well, but I have to believe waiting is the right choice.
OK, I'll try to be patient. I was ready with my order early last week but decided to wait to submit it electronically to make it easier on the processing end.
An update: Right now it's going to be another 12 hours or so before we get this thing working. I haven't pressed our webmaster for the 'why' of these seemingly interminable delays, but at least I know he's working on it. His last words to me were "but yes, we are getting closer. At this point, it looks like we'll go live tomorrow for sure." That was as of 5:54 EST, Cross your fingers!
