Spring Sale + updates
« on: April 02, 2015, 08:59:23 AM »
Starting on Saturday morning there will be a "Spring Sale" on boards that will last three or four days. Probably a fixed % discount.

Obviously, I have missed the "Late March" target on the next batch of releases. This is mostly due to finances at this point with the tax bill this year. So, I'm hoping the sale will drum up just a bit of extra cash to float some of these very large PCbs I am about to manufacture. I've also got a few pedals and things I'm going to post in the BST section. We are still on target as far as what will be released, though, so no worries there.

After the next release, I will be spending a few weeks to re-do the website as I outlined at the beginning of this year. I may sneak in one or two small projects at the same time, but the major focus is on the website.

This year has been very productive up to this point, with release batches coming about every 4 weeks. I am going to do my best to maintain that once the website redesign is complete for the remainder of 2015.
No matter where you go, there I am. Watching you.

I know it's not your style, but speaking for myself, I'd have no problem paying in a presale for new boards.

I think you wanted to say "no problem". If that's the case, I second it.

Let me third this. From the response to group buys it seems few have a problem with it.

Ha! Thanks for the heads-up on the typo!

thanks for the info Brian.
I said it in another thread and I'll repeat it here: I'm also happy to pay up front for the boards if it will make it easier for you to have them manufactured.

Same here about pre-payment. No need to over-burden anyone.

Great news and I'd happy to pre-pay as well if it helps, no worries.

If it means we can finally get these PCBs out into the world, I'm completely happy to preorder too!

I think it's safe to say most of us will preorder.

I actually had not even thought of it. Let me see how a pre-order might look for these. The sale is still on, of course.
No matter where you go, there I am. Watching you.
