I was actually aiming for a typical Nielsen letter. It would go something like this:

Dear Principle Management (or whoever runs this facility),

It has come to my attention that I have not yet recieved your cursed box that I've applied for and as a result, you have left me seething with anger, hate and aggression - yes I know, I know, it comes from a Star Wars quote (which is awesome by the way); back on topic: your cursed box (which will biodegrade anyway) has yet to arrive at my place of rest (no, not the pearly gates) and many others are question "where is my box?" as well and I'm 100% sure you do not want to infuriate the fans and myself; my temper can reach a point where I can commit suicide on a daily basis - wait that doesn't make sense....but anywho I never make sense considering the fact I always make these ridiculously long and pointless sentences the you end up reading before you realise the irony in reading this entire passage and end up being frustrated that you've wasted 5 minutes of your life reading this....where's my box...... Ahem.

Yours sincerly,

Nielsen.

P.S. Where the devil is my box?

Yes - if you didn't know, the competition wasn't for subscribers (I'm sure you knew that since you applied I think). You can e-mail as well  :D

I sent this to them:

I recently entered the competition for the U2 collectors Vinyl for the singles from this album.  I have recently came to the realisation that I am yet to recieve mine and neither has anyone else (I am a regular member of the @u2 forum).  I was just wondering what is going on and if I have actually missed out on one.



Kind regards

what do you think? hehe text me coz I gotta go bye bye!

I'm in the Uk - applied for one immediately but nothing has arrived.

Nobody else I know has one.

6,000 limited edition boxes.

Magnificent 7" limited to 4,000 copies.

I smell a rat!

Did they ever exist? Were they pulled?

A couple of people at u2.com have had a delivery of them, someone has also posted a picture of said box.I'm thinking someone has had a word with someone & have been told to send them out quick, even though they were meant to of been sent out between Feb & April.

The couple of people at U2.com could be insiders though just saying they got one to keep everyone quiet. There is absolutely no way they were sent out, and none have appeared on ebay yet. When the boxes for the CD singles on Bomb (and Electrical Storm and Windows) came out there were loads of them on ebay as soon as they came out. We'll believe it when we see them in the post.
