    Also, thanks to MacUalraig for the heads up, I would have missed it otherwise.
    I didn't, since they didn't notify customers (at least not me), I wasn't hitting F5 in this thread that day, and they haven't posted audio.

    It's a joke: "the truth behind the delays in 2018", as if this was a 2018 problem and not ongoing. My kit ordered mid-February 2019 and returned that same month has now been in "Sequencing started" with no results for 22 days.

    Feb 16, 2019: Ordered kit ($299)
    Feb 18, 2019: Shipping notification
    Feb 25, 2019: Kit received by Dante/logistics partner in Draper UT
    Mar 26, 2019: Message support to ask why kit messenger still says "Waiting Confirmation from Dante Labs".
    Apr 13, 2019: Response from Dante: "I can confirm that your sample has been received in our labs. We are currently running the DNA extraction ..."
    Jun 28, 2019: Dante switches to new kit manager, status is still "QC Completed"
    Sep 2, 2019: Dante: "84% of all our samples received by the end of July have been sequenced ... We plan to finish the entire backlog of samples by mid-October." I email to clarify about my kit status: same-day response: "Your sample is also being sequenced as with all our samples."
    Oct 3, 2019: Kit manager still shows "QC Completed." Ask for status, same-day response: "I have checked your kit and it is still being sequenced within your [sic] lab." Asked how this is possible. Same-day response: "We are in the process of releasing data to all our customers."
    Oct 13, 2019: "We are now sequencing more than 300 samples per week ... We have not completed our backlog yet, but we are getting closer every day."
    Oct 19, 2019: Kit status updated to "Sequencing Started"

    still nothing.

    And is Dante Labs now offering the same 30x WGS for $199 again with "8 week turnaround time"? Why yes they are. Do you believe it?
