Title: Info on next releases
Post by: madbean on April 18, 2019, 05:44:32 PM
I'm shooting for this coming Monday and I'll do my best. Instead of the new releases / restocks being split into two separate times I decided to wait until I could do everything at once. Sorry for the long wait. My restock order was ridiculously large and I'm not going to let it get so out of control again. I'm no longer going to wait on ordering restocks while I try to complete new projects. It just holds things up too long. On that note, I'm going to try an experiment of not announcing new releases in advance. Or, at least waiting until the actual boards are ordered. I have a tendency to get way ahead of myself! Therefore, I have removed all the upcoming listing on the Projects Page for now. They are not cancelled.

Anyway, just a few more days and everything will be back on track. The Fritter giveaway will also start at the same time. Word of warning - the VFE stuff may go out of stock in the next couple of days. Unfortunately, I was not able to afford to get new switching boards and MCU this time around on top of everything else. So, I will be doing that a few days after the new stuff releases and I have some extra $$ on hand.

So, you just announced that you aren't going to announce things, but you will restock as needed and will spend money when you have money, and you will randomly surprise us with the newest stuff?  :P
We will, of course, continue to love everything you do, and we will appreciate your efforts as we become aware of them.   ;)

I am a sucker for the giveaways though, so I'll probably order something cool from you.

(This whole post of mine should sound silly rather than mean.  I hope I accomplished that.)

I hope the caveat is that you will always announce new phasers, because phaser.

You pretty much nailed it. Even I am sick of my bullshit at this point.

Works for me.  No need to add to the stress of maintaining cash flow and keeping your inventory stocked while also developing new products.

I twitch at the appropriate dates but to honest, I order when the stuff becomes available and I usually grab whatever is new.  I totally understand how the board-delivery-from-supplier works and tweaks equal days.  In this day and age of instant gratification if might teach a rare commodity.  Patience.  It's maddening.  It's DIY.  I try not to pester you :-)

Can you go ahead and post the new project documents for items that are going on sale soon?  Likely some things need to be ordered besides the new boards....
Title: Re: Info on next releases

I'll start getting those docs up tomorrow. I'll just upload each one as it is completed.

I was sick all weekend (actually, I've been sick for most of the last 10 days) but I did get the Fritter doc up tonight. I will definitely get some more tomorrow. Everything will be up and ready for sale sometimes this week. Thanks for your continued patience.

Fuck the Fritter, what's going on?  Tell me you're not working yourself into the last bout of sick.

I swear me and the Volt will roll to TN if you're not taking care of yourself...

Missed opportunity here.

I think Gordo meant "Fuck the Fritter, time to get better."

Yeah, the older I get the more I realize that everything else will wait.  You can't mess with your health.  After a few beers my language had degraded to my post (I'd probably rephrase it) but the sentiment is there.  Me and the Volt would be dragging Brian's butt to the doc :-)

I wasn't knocking your concern, I was just going for the slant rhyme of fritter and better.  :)  Plus fuck the fritter is a funny turn of phrase, because I'm still roughly 12 or so.

Quick update:

I wasn't anticipating so many orders on just the small number of re-stocks I put up in the store a few days ago. So, I am including the Fritter with ALL orders. If you have an order that hasn't shipped, the Fritter will be included. Consequently, I am going to order some more Fritters tomorrow so when the new projects go live I will have enough to make everyone happy. Also, you guys already bought most of the Naughty Fish restock so I will order those tomorrow, too.

I truly appreciate the concern. I am 95% now. The last few weeks have sucked - major creative and "work" burnout then getting sick on top of that. But, I am better on all fronts. Re-engergized and ready to get back to work on mbp. I should be back on top of everything by the end of the weekend.

Aquababy, PorkBarrel, Retrograde and Rustbucket are now available in the store.

The remaining projects will come later this week.

You think there'll be any fritters left for the restocks on the 15th?

I have some more coming then so I hope so. Depends on what happens with orders over the next few days. Actually I just ran out today. Went through about 80 in the last week so I'm glad I ordered more.

If I order something now, will you hold onto it until you get the Fritters restocked?  While I would like one, I won't pass up getting a Rustbucket as that's been at the top of my MB build wish list, so I'm fine ordering now and saying Fuck the Fritter (gordo you started something here).

That said, if I do end up with a Fritter, I'll probably somehow use that phase in the etched artwork...

Yes. I will hold all orders that don't have Fritters until I get the re-stock (I think the new batch is shipping tomorrow). Currently there are less than 10 orders in that queue. I think I got 40 more boards but that's going to be it for this giveaway so it is first come first serve.

Thanks!  I just ordered a Rustbucket!  Because I don't have enough complicated builds this summer to complete :).

Do you think the Fritter stocks will hold until the Man O' War DX gets released? I was gonna wait until it comes out to place my order but if they're going that fast I might just order a couple boards now just to ensure I get my hands on one and then order the Man O' War whenever it comes out.

I wish I could give you a definite answer but I can't. I think realistically the MOW, Polytrog and HB 1.5 will come out at the same time as the new restocks. So, there may be Fritters left by that point or not. I think there are probably 25 or so remaining considering what I have coming vs. outstanding orders as of tonight.

Do keep in mid that the Fritter will be made available at OSH Park in a couple of weeks, as well. It's a small board and will be quite cheap to get from OSH if you don't succeed in the giveaway.

On the bright side - this situation is not going to happen again. Like I said before I am going to change up the way things are released so this piecemeal crap won't be an issue in the future. Plus, I have at least 4-5 more giveaways ready - enough to last into 2020. I actually really enjoy doing the giveaway boards. It's an inexpensive way to drum up orders plus give something back to all you guys at the same time. Win/Win.

Is it possible for you to put a link up to your OSH Park projects? Their search is terrible.

Fritters should be here Monday so I expect outstanding orders will start shipping same day (they are already bagged and waiting). Also, it looks like I got 60 more rather than 40 so that's nice.

Last update: All remaining Fritters claimed. In the end mbp gave out about 150+ so I expect to see lots of Hotcake builds, haha. A great success. We'll do another giveaway probably in July but I don't know yet what it will be.

I will have more info very soon on the remaining projects to be released (HB1.5, ManOWar and Polytrog). Lastly, all the boards currently out of stock have been re-ordered and should be here in about 10 days.

Wow --- over 150 Fritters sounds like a big success on that promotion!   And it sounds like you have been very busy filling the orders that go with those.   Thanks for all that you are doing here!
