So from what I can tell, it was cleared from customs after a delay? I hate this twitter-esque update. What I want to see is:
Item was thoroughly inspected and nothing was found. Following a brief donut break, the authorities released the package back into the care of the shipping carrier to be forwarded on to its rightful recipient. Thank you for your patience.

What I get:
Shipment Physically Released From Customs

Oh well. This has been your update :) Will let you know more soon.

Stay classy,
Isaac

TNT only updates when the package actually leaves China. As you can see all the initial updates are on a single day. Until that point the tracking doesn't do anything.

What a beauty. I also received my grating today. Thankfully it arrived in one piece. There was nothing in
there to stiffen it, though so I hope none of them get broken.

The glass was thick, so apart from the tissue, I wrapped it in thick bubble wrap and put it in a bubble envelope. I tested mine to see if they were fragile(ie- I put forth effort to damage it as might be found through mail).

Congrats. Just got mine. When I get home from work it's time to show off 100mW of 589 going through it!

Edit: few scratches but everything looks good and seems in order :)
