Re: Update #53 Production Update #1

But the hills are so nice this time of year!

Seriously though, if they're machine-assembling that just sounds like one or two bits were slightly misaligned.

Re: Kickstarter 2nd Run Query

I don't know if I'd expect higher prices. Even with the same price, all of the development has been done, case moulds don't have to be remade, the keyboard problem will still be solved, ... so as a naive observer I'd expect a second batch to be viable with the same price. Whether that leaves enough ...

I strongly believe that these days the main purpose of virus scanners is to convince you that you need virus scanners, so they must be seen to be doing something.

Maybe it's just me, but there's just something aesthetically pleasing about close-up shots of screens :)

Re: Update #51 posted for those not on Kickstarter or Facebook!

It also looks like more people can (or do) post updates now, which means we won't have to wait as long just because one person is overloaded :)

bit OOT , but is the video-out signal that bad -bit "noisy"- like on the screenshot? or its just a bad pic...
At first sight that noise looks like high compression jpeg artefacts to me, so that would be the photo, not the video signal

Some news

I don't think it's been mentioned on the forums yet, but Mike Cadwallader has posted a status update on the dev blog: https://specnext.dev/blog/2019/08/16/a- ... of-things/ (just saw it, I don't check often enough!). Looks like there should be actual news in a few weeks.

Heck, in the worst case, they may just use 3 layer membrane, for the price of the keyboard feel being ruined, they can now "deliver" KS within 3-4 months
That wouldn't be ideal, true, but I don't know about "ruined". I suspect it would still be the best stock spectrum keyboard ever.
