As requested I'll put my current status here on the first page.
Current status 19NOV02:
BB500 - In stock and slowely shipping.
BB400 - Due to ship from MFG today or tomorrow.
MM - Due to ship this week.
BB400 and MM will still need the epoxy fill, final form fit and functional test. The whole process will take 3-5 days for each batch.
Status update 22Nov02:
Received BB400 and Madmax modules and separate converter boards. Tested one each of the batch and they appear to be functional. Epoxy fill and final functional testing still ahead.
Status Update Dec 2.
Status update: I think we cleared backlog as of today for orders up to Nov 29th. Please wait one day to see if you get an email confirmation. It's totally possible I screwed up an order or two, delivered twice or not delivered at all on some stuff. About 40 boxes on Friday and about 30 more boxes on Saturday.
Status Update Dec 11.
All orders are being processed and shipped in one to two days typical now.
Status update 1/23/2003: I'll post this in the beginning as well.
Nearing the end of the month. We are now out of stock on Madmax modules so any future Sandwiches with Madmax will get backordered.
We have been out of stock on Badboy converter boards and are now getting very thin on Badboy 400 modules and Badboy 500 modules.
I plan on keeping the store open. So, I've made the decision. Not to terminate the store for various reason. One is the contract manufacturer did not perform very well and I got overcharged, and I lost a lots to scrappage for one reason or another.
The store will stay open to service the McLux DIY program, offer LEDs and all the other misc items that everyone seems to like. The response has been nothing short of spectacular and I would again like to thank everyone for such an overwhelming success.
I'm in the process of switching contract manufacturers and this has caused a hiccup or bubble where I won't be getting supplies for a while. During this period I'm hoping to be able to sustain some inventory again by hand soldering and hand assembly modules.
This is consuming more time than I had anticipated and is now delaying the McLux program. Fear not, it will be forthcoming. And the price that is currently being worked on is a very attractive one. I think you will like the pricing.
