What does unlimited for 30s after we hit the 300 mark mean? After you hit 300 boards, the form will stay open only for 30s, and any orders in those 30s will also be let in?

That is what it means :) From what I've read

So basically, if we're present when the GB goes live, I don't think we have to worry about missing it ...

The red alu plate was for the prototype but not offered in the GB.

The FR4 is matte black with gold highlights

does anyone know if the aluminum plate is teal by default?  I didnt see teal as an option in the dropdown menu, just curious

I think teal is default but it does say you can pick out the knob color so maybe you have to fill out a form after all the orders have been finalized? Or is the knob the same color as the case?

I thought as much; i believe the knob matches your case color of choice unless youre adding a brass knob as an add-on

I ordered two, didn't see the 'only 1 per person' bit on the page until I went back after paying to look at the brass knob option. I guess that's what happens when you have a frantic FCFS sale.

Yeah based on the order numbers it sounded like ~250 units got sold in the first few minutes and then it took another half hour for the last 50 or so.

the 10$ charge in my email is also the ~10$ that didn't get added when I selected e-white? I like your board a lot so if that's just the dog sticker here thats fine too.

nathanchere-I got verrrry close to checking out with 2 in the cart myself...

Damn. Didn't get any notification of this at all. I take it there will be no second run and I'm just SOL?

I'll have to try that, though knowing how my luck goes I will still be hoping for a second run.
