It can take a while to receive the electronic temperature meter from China. My first order of the meter from China has never shown up here so I have to start over. Go ahead and order it now as well as the dohickey if you have the slightest thought that you might want/use it. The lollipop dohickey from Russ should be pretty fast for your since you live in Northern Ireland.

You might want to check other places besides ebay/china. For a couple dollars more than ebay I purchased mine on (US) amazon prime and it was at my house the next day:

Checked out youtube for the dohickey and theres a note to pm him through youtube, via "about" "send message" but for some reason there isn't a send message option displayed although I am logged in to youtube.

Can someone advise where i'm going wrong or how I can request the dohickey

Cheers Gene, might be a "mobile/cell" display issue, definitely not appearing on my phone. Will sort it when I get home.

Thank you
