Re: Manic Miner 3D Printed Scene Framed for Sale

Shame it can't be posted, I'd definitely be interested if it could have been shipped. Awesome piece of memorabilia.

Re: Any chance of an update on the cased Next's?

I'm trying not to get jaded but why are direct questions relating to the Cased Next shipping date being ignored? Because they are busy fixing issues and don't want to be distracted? Honestly, the Next team is very small...rather than assume there is a conspiracy of silence, why not assume that they...

Re: Any chance of an update on the cased Next's?

I don't want them to even think about sending the finished product out until it is completely finished including all the coding If that means another six month wait then so be it Not sure why the coding is a problem, ultimately that's just a case of copying it to an SD card and updating it. Having ...

Re: Spectrum Next - first impressions

Plastic molding of complex things like keyboards isn't, as I've understood, trivial, so I'm ok with them taking some time to minimize risks.. Anyway, I wasn't really expecting them to ship before June ;) As for toothing issues, the QA budget for a mainstream consumer product of this complexity woul...

Any chance of an update on the cased Next's?

January was the original projected date for the cased Next's, are we still on schedule or will there be delays? An official word on this would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Spectrum Next - first impressions

When did the cased versions shipping date change from January to 'eventually'? Surely the hardest job was getting the board working, a plastic case to surround it shouldn't run into many problems should it? It would be nice to get an official update on the cased Next's as we are only a few days away...

Re: Why did the SpecNext Facebook block me???

I've got an unusual real name and I wouldn't want anyone thinking I'd joined Facebook after all these years. I've never used it and have no inclination to! I only set up this blank account to be able to fully use the Next group as this forum only gets a fraction of the interaction. Surely anyone wit...

Re: Why did the SpecNext Facebook block me???

As a follow up it was someone called Rich that has blocked me from the Next group because apparently having no friends or photos and being called Miner Willy makes me a troll! After reading message after message on here about signing up for a blank account on Facebook to have access to the group I d...
