Some news

Post by fgeva » Tue Aug 20, 2019 11:24 am

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.

I'm somewhat starved of news. Want more news. Can someone turn the team's verbosity up to 11? (Or do I need to login to Facetart to actually be informed these days?

But no, there are no news, still waiting for the keyboard guy.

Facebook is pretty crappy about intermittently hiding public groups to try to get you to sign up but yes there is more in-between news on facebook.

The wait is still on from the case & kbd manufacturers. The tooling is being made and a test manufacturer of a small batch to verify the manufacturing line will produce in spec. So nothing new to report over the past several weeks. Further information has been imminent for a couple of weeks now.

I think a "no news" news update might be a good idea.

Don’t waste your time. I held my nose and signed up for Facebook to try and get some sense regarding this project but honestly, there’s sod all on there either! 2 months with no official update, muddy ‘updates’ from non-team members, vitriol if you dare question anything! It’s an utter joke.

(sigh) Questions about the current status are answered constantly by team members. I just gave you an answer a little further up.

what about taking a pledge from backer against his will to shut up him up.

of course deleting official spec next forum account left and right.

and massive BANs on official FB.

communication is a pure shit, trucco is gone ?, AA leads the spec next core developement?, I * dont know, nobody is talking to us.

highly toxic behavior everywhere.

this project is cold and .. an utter joke.
