    Flash problem
    In my rush to add the Flash footprint to the RetroBlade2 at the last minute, I forgot to connect the WP and HOLD pins to 3V3. :(
    This is going to require a tiny wire mod when fitting the Flash part.

    Note I haven't soldered my flash part to my pcb yet so it's not been tested either.

    Are you going to change the pins of the USB ports to add the required 3 pin spacing in-between?

    No. The pcb is done and I have 100 pcs and most parts. No show stoppers as far as I'm concerned.
    I can change the USB driver quite simply to move the extra pin(s) per USB port.

    Oh. I thought they had to be neighboring pins. Excellent if they don't. What the ETA to USA for shipping if I order today?
  • Cluso99Cluso99 Posts: 17,840
    If i manage to build and test next w/e i can get them out mid following week. By post takes 14-28 days (usually 14-21) but we’re approaching xmas so don’t know if longer.
    If theee is enough, publison has offered to ship in the US but dont ghink theres enough to bother.
  • hinvhinv Posts: 1,059
    I want one. Please reserve one for me. I would like to pay for FedEx, DHL, or UPS deliver too if possible. Mail deliver to the states has gotten pathetic.

    There probably will be a lot more interest after the Zoom call if you present it like Peter did his. I can't wait to play with TAQOZ, and CPM and MicroPython, etc. I would love it if publison distributed them.

    Unfortunately, every time I investigate Fedex or DHL, without an account (haven’t had one for >20 years) the costs are more than $100. Just cannot justify it.
    There is a faster AustPost that is more reasonable but it really doesn’t seem to work out much faster. I’ll chat with Peter (Tuesday as I’m working tomorrow) in case he has any ideas or we can share some cost.

    What does mail within the US cost for 50gm and 100gm letter size 20mm thick cost? And how many days?
  • hinvhinv Posts: 1,059
    A flat rate Priority Mail 2day envelope that would take more than 100g is about $7.75
    First class, I don't know hot to calculate. I couldn't seem to find anything cheaper on USPS.com.
    Sharing shipping cost with Peter? You mean he's actually going to ship soon enough not to slow you down? You sure about that? If so, I'll order one of his also then.
    Peter's brilliant, but he's about a year late shipping product because of all of his genius revisions.

    We have the flat rate envelopes but they are internally within Australia :(
    I presume you are in the USA.

    Yes, I think Peter is close. I often speak to him so I'll check with him.
  • I'll take one board plus RAM. I'm in the US. Thanks!!

    RAM? There is no RAM option so I presume you mean Flash?

    The first post has a list of orders.
    Could you check and if there's a "?" in either NoFlash or Flash column the please advise which.
    I need your country in case I send to Publison to ship out in the USA. Not so sure we can actually save any time with this tho.
  • I want one for me:
    QTY: 1
    Flash: Yes
    Location: USA
  • Hi Ray,
    To update mine: Flash: yes, Country: USA

    Cheers,
    Jesse
  • DaveJenson country USA.

    Did you say where to send payment?
    and Cost?
  • Looks like we have 10 , (when I pay for mine), going to US. Should be good for a bulk order that I can distribute. Canada is included.

    Cost will be via PayPal in USD, US$40 without Flash, US$45 with W25Q128JVSIQ (16MB) and US$5 unregistered airmail post from Australia (you take the risk).

    I don't have his PayPal account. If I distribute in US, it will cost ~$2.00 for Postage and bubble envelope, but we will save on bulk shipping.
  • @Publison

    So do i pay you ($47) via your paypal or do I pay @Cluso99 ($45)?

    You would pay @Cluso99 first for now. I will ask for the $2.00 later when I have all the shipping addresses and product in the US. Still have to figure the bulk shipping charge. Could be that people will pay for the product to Cluso99 and I will pay for bulk shipping then divide it up later for US orders.

    Maybe we will talk about it on the Zoom meeting tonight.

    Can bulk ship to US :)
    Cost is A$39 500g so about 10-15 boards IIRC. They say 2-4 wkg days but slower with Covid.

    Please be patient and wait for payment instructions - trying to get production done and a zoom meetup first.
    And please update orders here, not by PM thanks - better for me to go to one place.

    Please check your order is correct on the first post.
