11.14 - Update on shipping
« on: November 14, 2011, 08:54:15 AM »
I've received shipping notification from the manufacturer for the pre-order boards this morning. This means that the pre-order boards will actually start shipping on Nov.16th or 17th since it usually takes about three days to get them to TN. I've kept all the pre-orders well organized so I expect to start sending them out the same day. It might take a couple of days to get everything out....the pre-order thing was a huge success (yay) but it takes a bit of time to bag and tag 100+ orders.

Thanks to everyone who participated. I feel comfortable enough with the process that I will do pre-ordering again for the next batch of projects.

On that note, I'm actually quite close to placing the next order. The past three weeks have been absolutely frustrating as hell. Every single build, prototype, idea has had problems (none of which are important enough to go into). It's a bit discouraging...yesterday I found myself saying "okay, let's build the next failure", ha ha. But, I've slogged through the issues one by one and passed a tipping point, so to speak. I'm quite energized to keep things moving at a fast pace.

Anyway, I'll have more details at the end of the week on what the next batch will be. I expect there to be between 5-7 additional projects. I would like to get at least ONE sub-mini tube project in there, and one or two of the baby boards.

Also, we are going to get this end of the year contest going. I've been dragging ass on that but I will touch base with the party planners ASAP so we can have something announced. Prizes will be offered, women will swoon, and pets will rejoice.

And in case any one is wondering, I am, indeed, keepin' it real.
No matter where you go, there I am. Watching you.

I've got all my parts ready.  I can't wait to get frustrated started.

The pre-ordering must help quite a bit so I think it's a great idea.  I will continue to support it.

Wow- I get frustrated when one of my builds doesn't work, and those are already verified by someone else.  I can't imagine what you must go through designing these things 5 & 6 at a time.  Anyway, good luck to you and keep up the great work!

Stoked about the upcoming projects!

Personally I'm in it to crush my enemies, see them driven before me and to hear the lamentations of the women. *nods*

After all that whining this morning I got my sub mini version of the Rump Roast going. Mother of god it sounds good! Hands down one of the best overdrives I've played.

A bit loud.

Exactly. Anybody who asks me for birthday/Christmas present ideas these days, I just send them Madbean's website link with the statement, "No, not looking for anything in particular. Surprise me."

Also, for the amount of time I spend reading this board, 5 posts is a joke. Going to have to start chiming in.  :)
