Info on next releases
« 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.

Hell yes! Not like I have a pile of boards that are years away from being completed or anything.  ;D

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 :-)
