Please notice that I've mentioned "Round 1". There's going be "Round 2" also but I can't say when. Kelly's helping me with this just until I'm ready to organize a group buy on my own. I'll point out again that I don't know when that could be. :(

I know that there are no plans at all yet for Round 2, but do you think you or your partners would be interested in expanding and making Round 2 non-limited? I'm gonna be extremely bummed if I miss the raffle (or can't find a way to afford this asap). :(

hello friends

I'll be doing a build stream for the TMO tonight at around 19:00 or 20:00 CET at https://www.twitch.tv/meltedcheesekeebs

will announce closer to the time on my insta https://www.instagram.com/meltedcheesekeebs/

sorry it's short notice, I just got my **** together to be able to confidently say I can build it tonight.

I'm hoping that anyone intested can ask questions or see the board, really actually building it is the secondary purpose of streaming.

See ya

No, it's been put on hold. I understand people are really interested in a R2 as am I but it's not possible for me to run it yet and I don't think Kellybear is eager to do a R2 too. The soonest I could (but I'm not saying I would) is this summer but that also depends on whether I get my **** together IRL or not. I'm on extremely busy schedule with work, uni and other personal matters. I'd like to run R2 myself but that also comes with some challenges as I'm an EU citizen and seeing that a large percentage of people that entered R1 raffle was from US, that means extra customs and shipping costs for example. There's always a proxy possible but that's still an extra step to do if 70% is going to a proxy and I'm covering only 30% (percentage is only an example, these numbersa aren't from R1 entrants), who's running the GB? :D Also my manufacturer (as a lot of others) increased manufacturing costs so that means either negotiating those costs or just ramping up on quantity and lowering options (3 colors instead of 6).

From a purely personal reason - I'd like to get my own TMO50's before doing R2 as I have a couple ideas on improving some aspects of the boards (redo indicator LEDs, bigger tolerance on the USB port) and adding other features (USB-C over USB-Mini, etc.).

P.S. I did some work on an acrylic "sandwich" design case that I wanted to open-source with everyone but all of the extra pcbs were bought out so quick that there's none left.

I understand. You may consider an agreement with a vendor.

Thanks for taking the time to write all of this out. Of course there are a lot of us who didn't make the R1 raffle or discovered the board afterwards who are interested, but we totally understand that life things take priority. I'll just be waiting here patiently!

How come you haven't gotten your own TMO50s?

Unfortunately for now you'll have to hunt one down or make your own using the plate files. Sorry mate.  :-[

Does this mean that the PCB/plate files are open sourced?
