You can still sign up to be notified, even before 9PM BST.

The issue here is that you never confirmed your email when you originally created your Kickstarter Account. Log in to Kickstarter, click the resend confirmation email option, and click the link in the email you receive.

THEN you will be able to sign up to be notified.

Stupid bug in the Kickstarter site that doesn’t tell you what went wrong, even though they know exactly why!

Wow, can't believe how quickly those early birds went. Said there was 99 left when I auto completed my card details, but my pledge failed 1 second later! I think this 2nd run is going to a massive success for the Spectrum Next and its community :D

I wonder if the backer options and prices will be similar to the first KS, or will there be some new options and/or higher prices. Hopefully prices won't be too much higher if they are. Guess we'll know in about 6 hours...
UPDATE: ooh, I think they are quite a bit more expensive than first KS... Oh well, I'm in for an accelerated Next. Not like I can buy one in a store. :-P

What a success this seems to be...
Numbers just keep flashing ;)
Congratulations for the team! You deserve it!

Though I won't be getting a second one :)
Too much other things to pay xD

So what version are others getting?

I went for the Accelerated but not sure I really need all the bells and whistles, but eh, why not.

ALSO, congrats on another successful Kickstarter to the Next team! I think it took about 3 minutes to meet the initial goal. :-P

How do I buy from KS2 without VAT (it is for export from UK to my Swedish company)?

I've already got an accelerated one from the first ks so just gone for the plus version as I want it as a back up incase the first one dies.

I signed up for the Accelerated model - I'm not getting prematurely excited, given that the release date is a year away but I'm happy to get one this time around. I didn't think the lead time on the second batch would be 12 months!

Hi! As a backer of the original kickstarter, I'm quite interested how the "digital port power feedback mitigation" is/will be done (which is mentioned in the description of the currently running kickstarter 2, that's why I dare to ask here!), and it's possible to some mod by myself (on a Next from campaign #1) to have some similar solution. I have the right tools and experience to do such a mod, but surely I would need to know first what the mitigation is, actually. Some kind of buffer chip or so? I assume a simple "put a diode" would not work :)
